(D)FORMADXS + U.T.C.H. (Una Tarde Comiendo Hormigas) / Nia Torres & Nisham

Nia Torres / Nisham /

DFORMADXS arises as a result of the question: do we really know our bodies or do we accept the identity we have/have been given?

We present a "dissident being" where she/he will experience throughout her/his journey and development a construction of herself/himself. Becoming aware of all the construction/manipulation that the hegemonic, patriarchal system exerts on her mind and body. A mutable and perfomatic matter that will (de)form and (de)construct itself anew.

In U.T.C.H. (Una Tarde Comiendo Hormigas), a global pandemic forces people into domestic isolation; a return to work is impossible. Creating an increase in the cost of living and basic supplies. The priority now is survival, eating and paying debts.

This situation puts in check our 2 protagonists, a Colombian and a Spanish, who are trapped in a small apartment. With no exit date in sight, a series of situations will occur that will test their emotional and mental endurance, escaping from all logical reality/time space.
