The FAM Festival (Arts and Movement Festival) brings the show Oro negro, a solo performance with two interpreters and live music by the creator Poliana Lima, to Espacio La Granja.


Oro negro uses oil as a metaphor to associate in poetic terms the process of digging up a treasure, taking into consideration elements and identities that were denied and excluded in the hegemonic Western culture. In Oro negro, the human body is the tool that digs and the recovered object where the demonic is revealed: flesh that is weak, vulnerable and perishable; feminine eroticism from the perspective of a woman's desire; blackness and the popular.


Oro negro presents the body as a territory of living memory, a place where biographic, familial and community-related dimensions are constructed and may be read: as socio-cultural, mythical and spiritual dimensions. This conception of the body allows exploration of the footprints of the unspoken processes of transmitting habits, customs, violence, pains and pleasures over several generations. Through its exploration of these multiple dimensions of identity, culture and time that comprise the body as a diverse, unstable and dynamic composite, Oro negro makes use of cliches, building to a climax in which the spectator's gaze is compelled to take position.
