Mal Pelo - The Fifth Winter
In “The Fifth Winter” the duo Mal Pelo, reflects on the passing of time and the boundaries of our own terrain. Two people wait for another winter to pass. They roam around the emptied stage, trapped in a space between deep silence and the voices of their memories, and distract themselves.

Streb - SEA (Singular Extreme Actions)

La Gitanada que volvió
I got to know a group of people that compose and sing Murga. It is a form of popular music theatre, performed using carnival dresses and make up mainly in Uruguay and parts of Argentina. Mostly coming from Uruguay, they created “Tirando la Bohemia”, meeting every Thursday night to rehearse, eat, drink and have fun same as a good group of friends would do.
The special aspect to me, is the fact that they do not earn any money by doing this. All of them have a regular job, being Thursday night their sacred moment to meet and enjoy as typical
traditions from their homeland. I would like to return to Madrid next month, in order to do a serie of photographs that displayn the passion these people have for Murga. I have a clear image in my head: Individual portraits, with subjects wearing makeup and their typical and really colorful dresses, with a plane solid color in the background.
