Created in 2020 at the Buenos Aires International Festival, Fuck Me is the final episode in a political, autobiographical fiction by Argentinian writer Marina Otero. A smouldering piece on the effects of ageing.
“I thought that I would always be centre stage, like a heroine avenging herself on everyone and everything. But my body couldn’t keep up with all those battles. Now, I let the other actors take my place. I watch as they allow me to use their bodies for my narcissistic ends.” The actors Marina Otero is talking about are all men. Five dancers who surround her and give their all – even stripping stark naked in a bold explosion of generosity. Marina Otero is a choreographer, dancer, performer, and icon of the alternative scene in Argentina; Fuck Me is the continuation of an endless piece based on her own life. A piece which pursues her exploration of the “I” as raw material for the set, of distorting reality, and of transforming the ego into an act of abandoning the self to another. Breaking down the barriers between documentary and fiction, chance and performance, Fuck Me scrutinises the idea of passing time and the scars it leaves on the body. An explosively sincere piece, radiant in its irreverence.
Programmed as part of the Festival Sens Interdits, festival international de théâtre
