urban bodies in decolonial deformation


Citycyborg – body, word and dream
Dani Miranda & Gabriela Cordovez

How does the city deform a body and how can you stage a city? The performance COPRODUCTION proceeds from the assumption that human beings do not control things, but instead are shaped and influenced by them. How we experience life in our urban spaces is a technology of improvisation that can build up and construct space. Even that which is thrown away creates space. In an immersive online conversation, it is possible to experience how the city shapes our bodies, for example, through the appearance of objects in the streets or the features of colonial architecture.
