performance of Samya Enes

In a world where language

and naming things are power,

silence is oppression and violence.

Silence , a performance conceived by artist Samya Enes, seeks to reflect on the silencing of women caused by acts of micromachism. For this, the work focuses on two perspectives: the abused body and the aggressor's language.

What female body is this that we present? How many marks, tensions, shortings, contractions does he carry to defend himself against daily micromachisms?

Can repetition generate displacements in listening and speech content?

Can talking and listening to micromachisms operating on a female body in front of you generate reflections?
