Collaboration on costume for Triste in English from Spanish

I began creating this work from my own sadness, a private and particular matter, trying, through it, to touch the sadness of the world, in general – to touch and run – but I went all around the world only to return to my private sadness, at the end. “The more you run from something, the closer it remains.” I am not only sad, I also completely shake myself up, spinning round and round.

I realised that, in the course of our long investigation, I was joining together fragments, phrases, ideas and searches, all of which pointed to a reflection on the state of the world and on the state of people in relation to the world, and in relation to the Earth, a planet that is increasingly less natural. My roots are ecofeminist, eco-queer, holistic, philosophical, strange, innermost. These roots have unearthed other treasures, very serious ones, frivolous, absurd and vulnerable, in a kind of anatomy of sadness, as a space that generates, as a space of sharing, as a space that generates pain and hope. Hope in what? I don’t know exactly, I have no answers, but, if you were to insist, I would probably say: in love.
