Still-Alive Dinner

Still-Alive Dinner is a participative performance in which we invite the audience to reconnect with themselves and the other beings with whom we share our bodies. Alongside drinking a series of fermented beverages, this ceremony-inspired experience will guide them on a journey created in the intersection of different topics like being alive and dead, being you and them, becoming rotten, and the colonization (and commercialization) of traditions, among others.

Sound mix and composition: Julia Nanda Bejarano López

Texts inspired by Las tres mitades de Ino Moxo y otros brujos de la amazonía, a book by César Calvo.
