In the performance, Aldrete explores being born and birthing as formative experiences. Drawing on Tamalpa Life / Art Process®, selfhypnosis, somatic self observation and breathing techniques, she traces the impossibility of memory and discovers that “all secrets lie in the skin and touch”. Schnittstellen* III is a sitespecific work and follows Schnittstellen* I and II (2021).
