Comunicación en Re Menor

There is no translation available.

In this performance Hector Barbone plays clarinet on a tall stand. He is faced with Lorena Orozco's actions surrounding a chair. She prepares herself to use a chainsaw, donning a mask and gloves, confronting Hector and his echoing melodies in a public plaza in Mexico City. She then cuts the chair in two pieces, silencing the player. There are symbols of power in this performance: a tall stage placed near a smaller one, the cathartic finale with an announced instrument, and the chaotic noise of a chainsaw confronting the clarinet's long melodies. In Orozco's words, the performance raises "questions about power and what it means to be human."
