What if the body was just a fiction?
What if the body were indeed many bodies?
One possible story among several. This work shows the diversity contained in the bodies of each person. A piece on the body built from the body.
The common thread will be the journey, a poetic journey through landscapes, rhythms, bodily states and patterns of movement.
Ficciones is the Cuerpo de Guardia’s first piece and it was directed by Poliana Lima.
