Jinete Último Reino Frag. 2 is a piece that combines sound, synchronised video, and live performances by Fran MM Cabeza de Vaca and María Salgado. Jinete Último Reino Frag. 2 also aspires to be a “poem in 3 dimensions”, where gestures, graphics, and sound come in threes, in combinations and shifts to various degrees of dictation, speech, and concretion in score form.
This is the second of the three fragments that make up the audio-textual research area about subjective disobedience, desire, repression, and the norm, entitled Jinete Último Reino, and started by María Salgado and Fran MM Cabeza de Vaca in January of 2017. While Frag. 3 approached the night as a moment of liberation and deviation, political struggle and hedonism, and –to a certain extent– youthfulness, Frag. 2 addresses the literacy tranche: literacy in which the body of childhood is normalised until colour (or gender) is retained in a more or less fixed image. Where does this violence come from? Where is it going? What is it about the difference of the body that resists? The piece made its debut in Barcelona in May of 2019, in the context of the Idiorítmies Festival, and in Madrid in the same month, as part of the Unalmés Cycle at La Casa Encendida.
