CHILE
PERFORMANCE AND ACTIVISM WORKSHOP – “Resistencia o la Reivindicación de un Derecho Colectivo”
LASTESIS

The artistic, interdisciplinary and feminist collective of women from Valparaíso, Chile, called LASTESIS (Dafne Valdés Vargas, Paula Cometa Stange, Lea Cáceres Díaz and Sibila Sotomayor Van Rysseghem) is dedicated to disseminating feminist theory based on performance, specifically through a interdisciplinary language that combines performing arts, sound, graphic and textile design, history and social sciences.

The local impact of “El Violador Eres Tu” and “Un Violador en tu Camino” (2020) gave this performance an international repercussion, having been reproduced in more than 50 countries. Now, they are traveling for the first time to Portugal to develop and present their latest project: “Resistencia o la Reivindicación de un Derecho Colectivo”, a collaborative staging in public space created in an artistic residency in Valparaíso, through interdisciplinary scenic strategies.

The workshop, which will result in a public presentation in Praça da Liberdade (Almada), seeks to translate some of the ideas of Judith Butler, Paul B. Preciado and María Lugones, through a scenic device supported by the bodies and experiences of the participants. In the antagonism between repression and pleasure, death and celebration, denunciation and resistance, the performance seeks to address the claim to the right to a life free of violence in a context of active colonization and extractivism.
