This performance is inspired by the poem “Cabeza abajo” (“Head down”) by Carlos a. Alfonso.
Bodies of artists, art critics, art history students, the audience, gallery owners, curators -all Cuban- cover the floor. a character with her face painted white, so as to erase individual features, with a suit imitating lambskin and a banner on her back carried samurai style, walks on the bodies while tying their hands and feet and covering their eyes and mouths. Every time a person is gagged and tied, the character ties a strip on her body, as a memento. Then she puts a flag in the hands of the tied person, as if marking a conquered territory. The music heard throughout the performance is a compilation of songs and hymns from the Cuban Revolution.
