BOUDOIR is a dance piece for the stage, about the construction of femininity in Latin America. Inspired by Paul B. Preciado’s thoughts about the boudoir, as the physical space that gives the shape of an specific structure and behaviour, the wood cabinet made centrally by a mirror, becomes in this piece the screen where the imaginary of the contemporary latin woman is reconstructed. The object appears as an altar in which the human body exposes a kind of nature with the intention of averting a transformation. The boudoir as object plays the symbolic roll of a colonial heritage which brought the conflict between the knowledge of the european world and the traditions of primitive and local cultures; BOUDOIR exposes the trouble and reveals the model of the urban women in Latin America, which is circulating among postcolonial imaginary of western and the one established by the creole cultural heritage.
