A circus show that mixes Cyr wheel, acrobatics, skates and stilts with rap, text, projections and live music
This “Circography of a transvestite” is a millennial autobiographical experience of Victoria that questions her adolescence and unlived queer childhood . The artist travels back in time and draws inspiration from feminine images from her surroundings – the women in the market, the neighborhood chonis and the dolls she never played with. A childhood obsessed with her mother’s skirt and heels while her grandfather sang and tapped flamenco rhythms on the table. When the reggaeton starts playing in the neighborhood, it means that she has entered adolescence , that carousel of self-esteem, hetero-cis-normativity and lack of roll models. Victoria is a collection of iconographic obsessions of the feminine that have always been sought after by the artist but were difficult to access, having been raised and socialized as a man. Together with Victoria her fairy godmother is on stage, a technician who facilitates the journey by making music, live video projections, smoke, stilts and moving scenery.
