A MEMORIAL FOR MY LOST FAT
My nemesis could not be completely executed because that means I have to kill myself…
A half-successful self-murder…
A joke that laughs at itself!
A pagan memorial service could be the first step to befriend the enemy.
By an eclectic collage of invented rituals, I revisit my deceased fat’s last years and our relationship.
This is a confessionary performance about my struggle with body-image issues, the pills and other demons that came with it.
Performer & creator: Mercedes Balarezo
