"Retrato de un monstruo" by Ayara Hernández and Felix Marchand
Within the programming ofUnalmés
Retrato de un monstruo (Portrait of a Monster) is a trio halfway between comedy and mystery, innocence and pornography, with cheap magic tricks performed in plain sight and optical illusions.
Retrato de un monstruo is a work of bodiless bodies, of creature-men moving through a jungle of sounds, objects and other beings that criss-cross without consensus or contract. There is a constant tension between being a body, having a body and inventing a body: between what is shown, what is concealed and what is about to appear.
