It’s a scenic proposal that talks about short metaphorical scenarios of death. Francisco Córdova (México) and Rakesh Sukesh (India) developed this collaboration searching for the cultural similarities between India and Mexico. One of the most significant shared cultural phenomena between both cultures is the way they have approached death throughout centuries, how society perceived it. This became the starting point for their research. In May Us Bless The I, the artists found a way to combine three different elements within the narrative of the piece: RITUAL, EGO and DEATH.

The concept of death for eastern culture promotes the concept of hanging on, growing up with the idea of “forever”, while the other culture tries to set itself free from life, escape from earthly existence. “If you relate like I do, you’re already dead”.
