31-12-05 / 01-01-06
Performance. Ciego de Ávila, Cuba. 2006
Performance about the lapsing of the time which reconstructed a popular ritual. The tradition consist on to place a glass with water outside during the evening and to drink it during the first lights of the sunrise. The water should be then loaded with the influence of the stars and the concentrated energy of the previous night. The performance remade this ritual at December 31, when the year changes, as metaphor of the energy of a whole year which concentrates on the last night and therefore to all the experience of a stage which give place to another one.
