Marina Otero



Watch the trailer here

Marina Otero is an exceptional dancer, who makes, or used to make, exceptional demands on her body. «I have always seen myself as at the centre of attention, as the heroine who takes revenge on anybody and anything. But my body was not strong enough. These days, I yield place to my performers. I will watch as they lend their bodies to my narcissistic agenda.» This is Otero’s introduction to «FUCK ME» while she sits at the edge of the stage in the role of the narrator. On stage, there are five naked, well-toned men, all named Pablo, who dance for her.

The third part of her «endless theatre piece of my life» is an eclectic mix of bio pics, documentary theatre and striptease-like dance numbers. Otero tells about how harshly she trained until she could scarcely move, about the operation on her back and hospitalisation without sex, about Andrea, the prostitute, with whom she identified as a teenager, and about the young Marina, who did everything to please. In sharp contrast to the seemingly indestructible musclemen, Otero exposes without mercy the marks that life has left on her body. Ambiguous as its title, «FUCK ME» is a radically candid slice of life as well as a harsh criticism of an achievement-oriented society. (esc)
