variations on coffee

Variations on coffee is the first result of an investigation that crosses the lives of women coffee producers and classifiers from the community of Pluma Hidalgo and a woman who never worked in the field. A braid of bodies and feelings between women of different cultures and traditions, as well as ancestral practices and daily life.

How much do we see of what is behind?

A dramaturgy built jointly in which both universes intersect. An invitation to contemplate and reflect on the processes behind what we consume.
From the installation it moves to the staging organically. The piece begins with a tour of 23 bags of parchment coffee beans of different weights in which the thoughts and feelings experienced during the counting are recorded. These bags can be touched, manipulated, read and even bought after the performance.
