AJARIOT – PERFORMING ARTS COLLECTIVE

Ajariot – Performing Arts Collective born in 2014, is a group of  female artists, performers, activists, dancers, videomakers, scholars and organizers. Research, transdisciplinarity and the theme of self-determination are common themes of interest. Through them they explore the relationship between the body and visual images, expressed with corporeal, somatic, plastic, visual, documentary and political practices.

D.A.K.I.N.I. A cataclysm has devastated the planet; the women have disappeared and there is a male oligarchy that creates biocyborgs with feminine features suited to their sexual pleasure and to the reproduction and generation of only male fetuses. Every fifteen years their bodies are dismantled and reassembled and their minds and memories are reset. One of them has a bug that allows her to remember the memories of her previous life. She doesn’t recognize herself in her new body and starts asking herself questions. Who am I? What am I?
A multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary performance that investigates and brings together the themes of Artificial Intelligence with contemporary feminist theories.
