Originally Operetta is a more popular animated and abnormal style of opera, the main feature of which is an unlikely and crazy plot. This operetta is a journey of times. The room, which is the sidewalk with 8 people and in silence. The curtain rises and behind ethereal orange curtains, Gala's voice quotes us in the 19th century.

Pilar Martinez Peria | Villa María, Argentina, 1986 | Film and TV Production | Teacher | Performer | @britneymartinezok
Jair Jesús Toledo | Villa María, Argentina, 1986 | Film and TV Production | Visual Artist | @unovnimevioami
Since 2016 they have been working as an artistic duo for the performance "La Britney Cordobesa". This work of performative character is based on mimesis translated into regional pop product format. It is a work that, with minimal resources to make it possible, interpellates its viewers directly through a sense of humor, resorting to the concrete representation of an indisputable icon that is part of our history and cultural imaginary.
SIRENES ERRANTES (ERRANT MERMAIDS) . . . MORE INFO
Sirenes Errantes (Errant Mermaids) build bodies with the voice, listening between breaths to allow feelings to emerge.
We are a group that carries out a genealogy of practices, actions and encounters where salt, the body, the notion of mermaids, and a village of collective emotionality are deepened to find paths leading to the emergence of sensibilities in the social body.
We ask ourselves about the passages among pedagogical, therapeutic and scenic moments. Recalling a dystopian past by resetting our parameters of reality and of history construction, as a possibility to create futures. We rehearse ways of life through which the issues of intimacy and caring are revalued in urban, domestic or virtual spaces.
Amidst confinement and social distancing, we plunge back into a sea of uncertainties with the Servicio de Escuchasión (Listening Service); a practice that wonders in the sensitivity produced within the ongoing pandemic-based encounters. We generate a Collective Archive that is made up of sensible records of this practice during the current state of emergency.
Sirenes Errantes are: Julia Hadida, Bautista Viera, Violeta Mansilla, Marta de la Gente, Meme Liébana, Osias Yanov, Silvia Estrin, Martín Tchira, Alejo Petriz, Flor Carrizo, Nina Kovensky, Melisa Chetto.

Escuchasiones (listenings) in between time strangeness
Confinement like a historical bridge between a marked BEFORE and AFTER, changing the way of living the days, calls into question the chrono-normed conception of time. Location from where we ask ourselves: can there be an experience of unknown time? Chrono-normativity is a way to conceptualize the predominant measures of time -counted in a way, evolutionary, linear, without return, etc-. To be delayed, for example, is part of this conception of temporality. The escuchasiones pour us into a dispute over how time is lived, while sharing a way out of it.
There are many times, there are many esthesis. But how to achieve a human elapse that moves away
