FELICITACIONES (Congratulations) is a performance that is part of an investigation into the relationship between body / city. This research is guided by questions about the corporality that are built to live in the city and its public spaces. The starting points of this creative process on the one hand were: drunkenness, understood as the broad spectrum of body changes that affect the body by consuming different substances; And elsewhere: vice, understood as a repetition of an action that involves intensity and produces wear. The dialogue between the body intensity in states of intoxication, and repetitive and exhausting of vice, has resulted in the structuring of actions that make the piece.
