This narrated performance explores notions of narrative, invisibility, expectation and how we question the authorship of our own work. 
It is a renegotiation of the desire to narrate and to do so through other voices. The story is constructed from the rewriting of a dialogue about the experience lived after an almost theatrical event/performance of a work that ephemerally exists. 

With the aim of investigating what remains after having attended the first part of Realmente ahora no ya no , which occurs at another time, in another place, and how we narrate the lived experience. Being this past event what marks the construction of the present. 

Far from a stage performance, we witness something that invites us to listen, a sound sequence, a campfire, fragments of a conversation between M, L, N, F, A, L and O.

Times new Roman explores the surfacing of the area as a measured momentum, a temporal appearance, stating the conditions of unannounced plays. This could be a ship that one day drifts ashore from the extensive sea, or a hickey that left a symbolic mark on the lover’s skin. What does such ‘temporal’ emergence of an area signify and how do we interact with such a behaviour that acts like a phantom in space?

“The scars usually disappear with time. While they heal, you can use make-up to cover them. There are certain dermatological techniques that help make scars less visible. However, the treatment only improves the appearance of the scar, but does not erase it completely”
