El Maguari

Performance with vocals and gestures.

Hamburg, 2021

According to the culture of the native peoples of Amazonas, there is a spirit called the Maguari, who lives in a parallel dimension to ours and feeds on human flesh. This spirit serves as a regulator of the jungle, a kind of judge who abducts those who have not lived in harmony with nature. Elena Victoria wonders in a frictional way how the transterritorialization of these spirits would be in a reality far from their environment, what would be the gestures they would make and the sonority that would emerge in a new society. Performance of vocalization and free expression inspired by the story of Maguari.

With the kind support of BKM Hamburg.
