Abstract


The Acts: A few short Lines
The starting point for this performance is the femicide that is occurring on the
Mexico/US border. It is an attempt to examine the political and aesthetic
implications of the consequences of socio-sexual oppressions that remain a brutal reality for sectors of women worldwide.
