Cervantino presents the virtual piece Aislada in the digital space

The Live Arts Laboratory invited artists from different disciplines to participate to be part of a temporary experimental group that continues the reflection of Mapa Teatro, composed of Heidi Abdelhalden, Rolf Abdelhalden, and Jimena Álvarez, Colombian performance and visual artists.

The initiative aims to recognize us as hybrid communities and collaborate in building a meeting space dedicated to highlighting the lines of exchange that exist between the worlds we are and the virtual environments we live in, as indicated by its creators.
