Dimanche Rouge presents a performance by Emilio Rojas, an interdisciplinary artist originating from Mexico City, at the Plateforme gallery at 8pm on August 2nd, 2013. Admission is free.
“The only way to experience this performance is by being present when it happens, there is no descriptions, no language that can translate the action. A response to the site, a first encounter, a love affair, a massage with avocados, a wrestling mask . The possibilities of failure, and the romantic confrontations with strangers. Letting chance and intuition have the final say, and it could be all in your hands.” Emilio Rojas
