Photocopy / Fotocópia is a performance in which a list of words and gestures is created. The list is based on Irina Botea’s experiences of participating in various meetings, marches and protests of the 15-M movement (also known as the indignados), that took to the streets in Spain in 2011. The re-enactment of the protesters words and gestures is performed outside of the public realm of social action, in a nondescript studio. The performance can be seen as an attempt to choreograph an interpretation of collective protest and the significance of individual agency. This symbolic re-contextualization of demonstrative actions raises questions about how spontaneous public protest can be transformed into a sustainable process of participatory democracy.
