Waste In Process 2 – A research based on texts of Gilles Deleuze and Noam Chomsky.
2007-2008

The set design is an installation made up of three tons of newspapers, which serve as tool for creation in radical spatial relationships, soundtrack created live, physical theater, video projection and text is integrated in an interactive and dynamic performance.

The newspaper is dealt with according to the interpretation of each performer / author, viewer / author. A reflection that aims to take the audience to question what is false, what is real, which is manipulated and what in fact is part of the enormous web of events that constitute our century. A critical view on mass media and communication.
