BREA Y PLUMAS (TAR AND FEATHERS). Beatriz Palenzuela, choreographer and dancer, engages in a solo, where her mask is identified with that of a man, a dance through repressive gestures identified with patriarchy, characters like Hitler and Mussolini with his arm raised. Memories of those dictatorships of the past and present. Patriarchy was the first structure of domination and subordination of history and even today remains a basic system of domination, the most powerful and enduring inequality and the least perceived as such.
