La Mondonga is a live performance creation project that stems from writing. Its premise is a number of autobiographical poems written over the past two years. These poems were from the outset conceived to be developed in a format that alternated between performance and spoken poetry. The text is so oral that it is as if the author were at the reader’s side, reading exclusively to him/her. La Mondonga deals with self-exile, addictions, love, emotional dependence, early motherhood, dysfunctional family, divorce, precariousness, madness, emotional instability, vulnerability. Life itself.
Carolina Olivares studied Performing Arts at the ARCIS University in Santiago (Chile) and in 1995 she created the first contemporary art gallery in the city in Valdivia (Chile). In Barcelona she was co-founder of the independent structure KBB (Kültur Büro Barcelona), which she co-directed from its opening until 2004. In 2008 she created and directed CO productions, an independent platform for the production and management of artistic projects and cultural events. In 2016 she created the ANFITRIONA project, which was carried out in her house, self-managed and independently with a series of artistic encounters, literary happenings and performative conferences whose objective was to become a shelter for the active spectator. Together with Jordi Colomer and Eduard Escoffet, in 2018, she founded La Infinita, a laboratory for artistic creation, research and production between the living and visual arts based in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona). As an audiovisual producer, she has worked with different artists, such as Iván Argote, Valérie Jouve, Itziar Barrios, Camille Llobet or Enrique Ramírez, among many others.
