Carolina Trigo
Curtain

Rituals are acts of transformation. Habits are rituals we enact everyday, but more mechanically. The performance addresses the boundaries between these gestures in relation to cultural forms of trade and assimilation.

The performance uses coffee filters as a metaphor. Coffee is cultivated in the Southern hemisphere and exported to the Northern one. Yet this movement, in terms of beneficial reciprocity is not always mutual, as socio-political boundaries are usually crafted by fire. Curtain negotiates the discrepancies between cultivation and consumption, and draws a line between these transfers. A line that can to be overcome.
