Individuals, as migrants, thinks of themselves as divided, and feels a force of attraction that pulls towards the place of origin, which takes them to experience a range of complex sensations and emotions.
A psychological portrayal about “Morusa”, a migrant character facing a city of 21 million, and the evident difficulty to connect.
She is the product of forced exile in pursuit of better conditions, opportunities and survival. This piece is a glimpse of Morusa’s intimate self, an isolated character that loses touch, manifesting a distorted perception of reality.
Unipersonal para un intérprete miope explores the body as the territory of memory and mutant identity, a storage of sensations the body has internalized, a cluster of experiences that may or may not be verbalized, but are definitely perceived.
