In this performance installation by LEIMAY, led by the duo Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya. this piece explores the modern search for personal identity, juxtaposed with society ideals, pseudo realities and multiple perceptions of existence. The artists will expose the human body in a state of highly physical action together with multilayer projections.
