Mercedes Peón OSMOSE
OSMOSE is the first hybrid piece by Mercedes Peón, an audiovisual, performative and musical scenic piece.
The protagonists are the women workers of the Pontesa factories and the galician canneries, people who come from self-sufficient microhabitats, where pre-gender bodies lived in collective creation agreements.
Peón’s performance is also a collective dialogue through images from her personal archive together with the visual work of Peque Varela, the narrative of the film Nación directed by Margarita Ledo Andión, and the lighting design made by Laura Iturralde.
Mercedes Peón, original idea, musical composition and performance/ Peque Varela, stage direction and visuals / Laura Iturralde, lighting design and performance / Mintxo Alejos, sound design.
