Berlin – EYIBRA & Oldo Erréve: Virdolor

A modern embodiment of the Man of Sorrows (Varón de Dolores) who, in the verse of the
Chants of the Suffering Servant is considered a prefiguration of the Messiah: “Despised and
rejected among men, a man of sorrows, aching in grief; and as we hid his face from him, he was despised, and we did not esteem him” (Isaiah 53:3).

In contemporary contrast, this piece explores the antihegemonic queer power and places
a happening performance about the space-time coexistence of two corporalities socially
determined as “masculine” that have been divided by race and that have opposite complexions, to reflect the juxtaposition of different worlds.

Creating a liminal atmosphere with contorted body movements, chants originated from the
depth of the throat mixed with computer-generated sounds and a lighting environment that
transforms from the contemplative to the aggressive, this performance contrasts a paradigm
about equality in times of gender identity, body diversity, neo-masculinities, and
the questioning about the roots and origin.
