“Fechos (clasps)” is a performance developed in 2015, based on autobiographical references about the violence that crosses the \”corpas\” (bodyes). During the covid-19 pandemic, the work was transferred to video support, with the development of a video performance. Synopsis: How many clasps surround it? How many clasps fit before they are opened? What and how many violences cross the body? Of the insistence on closing, of what jumps to the eye and that transforms.
