THE FLESH / Paula Quintana

LA CARNE (THE FLESH) is the second part of a trilogy about the uplifting and rise of bodies that started with LAS ALEGRÍAS (THE JOYS) in 2019.

It is a project where bodies, text, equipment, and electronic music come together in an epic and contemporary tragedy. We revisit the original structure of the classical tragedy, and we distance ourselves from the autobiographic and auto-referential practices on the contemporary scene to tell our sci-fi story. The story that unfolds is about CAMILLE. A poor, emigrant women, destined to be forgotten in history, CAMILLE rises in resistance and reveals herself as the first symbiont in a near future (2025-2110). She becomes the referent for a new era of transformation for the human species and the planet as a whole.

Local people will form a CHOIR of bodies that will participate in the play through the workshops HEAT THE FLESH Credits and datasheet
