This is a short improvised performance by Michelle Isava, Eliseo Solís Mora and Rodell Warner at Territorio Desdibujado 2.0 (Blurred Territory 2.0), curated by Solís Mora, as part of the 11th Velada De Santa Lucia in Maracaibo, Venezuela.

What ended up happening reflected conversations we'd had in the days before about difficulty/failure communicating across language barriers and about forcing one's culture/solutions onto others - both these themes derived from our collective experiences travelling and encountering these things in our interactions.
