Requiem for a Lost Land / Requiem para una tierra perdida


The bilingual title makes reference to the bi-national reality of the “war on drugs.” Requiem… is an attempt, from the performance art space, to open with a coroner’s knife the very same discourse of death broadcast by those in power under the guise of “national security”. Inside its rotten entrails, we re-discover the daily suffering of the common citizen, the one most affected by a vicious and pathological decision of the state that has nothing to do with his or her well-being, and much to do with some of the darker designs of power that the country has seen in its history.
