As part of Proximamente programme, Rodrigo Arena will carry out a research and development of his new work in progress held between the Bienal Arte Joven Buenos Aires and KVS. 

The artist redoubled the bet, offering his life in exchange for the consideration of his complaints, beginning the exposition of his cause. The artist's allegations are not considered valid by the Board, and Rodrigo is shot to death. The story of the trial will then be traversed by the hallucinations of the artist's soul, who will try to achieve peace and redemption in order to rise to heaven. Not obtaining it, he is sent to descend into hell towards the end of the work.

The audience will attend the work in progress version of this performance and an after talk with the artist after each show.
