I Am You

Itinerant Ritual Performance/ 2023

Extract from I AM YOU, performed in Madrid, in 2023.


The performance I AM YOU became as well an experimental movie, directed by Allegra Ceccarelli and edited by João Maia.


Tired of being ignored, silenced, usurped, devoured and raped daily, Mother Nature materializes herself in the bodies and voices of “plant-animal” women to claim back her space. A ritual, a witchcraft, an ancestral return to the origins....or a love declaration to the one who offers us so much and receives so little in return? It is a pause that let spectators reclaim a break from the injunctions of a world that runs after money, fame and greed thereby causing its destruction.


The ritual performance art I AM YOU is an offering, a play that is made to enchant city centres, made to enchant the public visual and sensorial senses, allowing it to be bewitched.
