A idea primaria é esnaquizalo a cabezadas



A idea primaria é esnaquizalo a cabezadas embraces the non-conformist spirit of the poet Xela Arias and gathers her experimental impulse to establish a dialogue between poetry, living arts and document theatre. An imaginary, fragmented and incomplete route through Vigo in the eighties, through voices that shared Xela’s generation. An investigation that escapes from historical rigorism and proposes an experiential approach to poetry and collective memory.
