Guevara's work propose playgrounds where the body in time-space becomes a source of non-binary knowledge. They propose abstraction as a strategy to decolonize knowledge. A blurry gaze at the constant state of becoming.
They create choreographies that linger at the threshold of exciting and forgetting where the body is a source of healing.
