Descripción
Sirreras Fem propone un desbloqueo, un giro, un reto a las barreras que limitan aquello que queremos ser. Esta performance es un rugido, no para imponer la ley del más fuerte, sino para reclamar un espacio de libertad del ser a través del trabajo de tres mujeres que se unen para decir este cuerpo, este lugar, esta comunidad somxs nosotras/es.
Esta es la primera colaboración de Arantxa Araujo, Verónica Peña y Yali Romagoza, miembros del New LatinX Art Collective.
