Travelling for the first time to Portugal for the development and presentation of their most recent project.
“Resistencia o la Reivindicación de un Derecho Colectivo” (“Resistance or vindication of a collective right” is the new creation by the collective LASTESIS, a collaborative production for the public space, created in the artistic residency in Valparaíso through interdisciplinary scenic strategies. With the participation of around 80 women of different ages and backgrounds in a process of creative research. The project aims to translate some of the ideas of Judith Butler, Paul B. Preciado and Maria Lugones through a scenic strategy sustained by the bodies and experiences of the participants. Through the oppositions of repression and pleasure, death and celebration, denunciation and resistance, the performance approaches the vindication of the right to a life free of violence in a context of colonialism and active extractivism.
