Performance Discipline
Performance [gender-noise]
Quimera Rosa is a lab that researchs and experiments on body, technology and identities. Our aim is to develop practices able to produce non-natural cyborg identities from a multidisciplinary perspective. We assume Donna Haraway’s notion of cyborg, that defines it as: “chimeras, theorized and fabricated hybrids of machine and organism.”

Aware by postfeminist and postitdentitary discourses, we make bodies a platform for public intervention, breaking up limits between public and private. We understand sexuality as a technological and artistical creation and seek to experiment hybrid, flexible and changing identities able to blur frontriers betweeen natural and artificial, normal and abnormal, woman and man.

We are specially interested in the articulations between art, science & technology, and their function in the production of subjetitivities.

In our performances, you can see a hybridization body / machine / environment, hybridization obtained with the incorporation of electronic devices connected to the body by BDSM techniques and the use of the electrochemical properties of certain elements (water, quinine, salt …). Our work includes long periods of research / experimentation, generally during residences. This past year, our work as performers combine with an intense activity of dispensing workshops based on the [BodyNoise Amp]. This workshop is based on the construction of the device and a body prosthesis, and experimentation with synesthesia generated by the use of the device.

For all these reasons, the most of our work is developed in a collaborative way under free culture paradigm.
