# JUANA DOLORES # * massa diva per a un moviment assembleari * (too much Diva for an assembly movement) is a performance solo that, starting from the decontextualisation of ideology, symbology, and Marxist-Leninist terminology, shows the pain of the individual within the community as the desire to be socially and culturally sexualised; as a confession; as a declaration of love.

I don’t believe in excuses. Making excuses is for cowards and traitors. I make an effort to keep suspecting the forest – there, in the distance / from on the scaffolding. However, a golden wind and my feet hesitate / and my tongue hesitates / and my pride hesitates: my stupid lack of balance launching me against the ideology that supports me.”


Juana Dolores is an actress, writer and video artist. She has published Bijuteria (winner of the 56th edition of the Amadeu Oller Award for Catalan Poetry, 2020, Edicions Galerada) and, following on from LIMPIEZA (2020) and SANTA BÁRBARA (2020), she has written and directed MISS UNIVERSO (2021, Temporada Alta), a short film somewhere between video art and video essay in which she plays a model reflecting on the concept of eroticism in the works of  Georges Bataille. She is currently on tour with her first theatrical performance piece,  # JUANA DOLORES # * massa diva per a un moviment assembleari * (2019-2020, Antic Teatre).

Rita Rakosnik (Barcelona, 1993) is an art historian and an independent critic and curator. She writes and presents talks on literature, thought trends and pop culture in media such as Núvol, La Llança and Ràdio 4, where she recently began working on the magazine show Avui Sortim. From her perspective that curatorship is a constellational activity indivisible from critique, she has curated El nom és pols d’estrella (winner of the Mirada Pilot 2021) and Com no ser vista: Notes sobre fotografia en femení (Espai Fotogràfic Can Basté, 2020). She has also participated as an artist in La transformació sensible (Fabra i Coats, 2021) and Locus Amoenus: espais digitals habitables i contra-normatius (MAC Mataró, 2020). She’s a member of cybernetic collective Hybris Viral and author of «Amb A d’Amant», which was included in Avui és demà: 10 relats per repensar el futur (Editorial Pagès, 2020).

With passion as her currency and elegance as her watermark, she likes to say that everything she does is an excuse to rehearse the affects and effects of writing.
