Currently the world is going through a global pandemic, which used to occur in only certain countries, has crossed borders and is now spread throughout the world. The confinement of populations to a time not yet definitive, the uncertainty, the scarcity of medical resources as well as the loss of human beings around the world, are reflected in these 27 video performances that make up the Dislocated Show -Colombia version-. These manifest images explore through the body its concerns, uncertainties, reflections and criticisms of the current situation of confinement with: applause, murmurs stopped by a mask, moments of panic and schizophrenia, of capitalism, altered times, timeless, broken agreements , to become a plant or animal, to point out other pandemics such as the armed conflict and gender violence that existed before Covid-19 and that are manifested even during the confinement. This sample -Colombia version- includes artists from Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, the United States, the Dominican Republic, Chile and Colombia selected for the 12th Live and Deferred Action Meeting. The Dislocated Exhibition will be exhibited by the six independent artistic platforms and performance festivals, with some variations, that make this exhibition possible: TracingAcity (INDIA), Dissident Bodies – Dissident Bodies (USA), Live and Deferred Action Encounter -AVD- (COL), BDG (USA)), La Sonora Performancera (MEX) and Live Hive (INDIA).
