Overol Glory

Lectura de mi texto
Brillante * Magnética * Fugaz seguido por un performance en colobaracion con Guillaume Brisson-Darveau.

Live reading of Brillante * Magnética * Fugaz (written in Spanish). I perform naked and fully waxed, shielded by an antistatic alveolar film overol with a male industrial cut. The performance took place in an old factory in Buenos Aire’s Technology District.

In the text ‘ella’ (she) works amongst electronic componentes. (she) shields her body under a plastic polymer membrane. (she) slides her digits inside a latex glove. (she) wears no undergarments. (she) lacquer’s her groin with azulene wax. (she) rids herself of all body hair. (she) gleams. (she) shines.

The reading was followed by a choreographed ritual-catwalk with seven costumed performers, produced in collaboration with Guillaume Brisson-Darveau. A recorded synthesised track of my voice was presented on speakers, permeating all acts.

Overol Glory was produced with the support of Creative Scotland and the Conseil de Arts et des Lettres de Québec.

Costumes and sculptures by Brisson-Darveau.
