Bio
Santiago Cao is an performer and audiovisual artist born the 12th November 1974 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He studied Visual Arts and Psychology and has been involved in theatre, dance, literature, and clown and street shows. He experimented with indigenous rituals with ancestral plants such as San Pedro and Ayahuasca looking to broaden his perception of reality. He uses his body through performance trying to look to show portions of reality, generating questions within others and himself.
He has a special interest in actions that through ‘rites of passage’ help a transition from one state of consciousness to another. Or expressed in his words, “modify the space so that the space modify us along the time”.
He has been working with diverse concepts, but perhaps the most important is that of the ‘veil’ understand it as that which separates me from the object, and allows me to understand it in its totality; as with that subtle layer that separates the subject and the crudeness of reality, allowing its acceptance, its assimilation, but at the same time denying it and therefore deny the possibility of changing it. We give ourselves distance from the object so as not to identify with it, to consume it at a distance, covered by a veil which doesn’t allow us to see the unbearable.
It is from this understanding that he calls his performances “Act of de(veiling)”. Situations where, using the body as a medium, he look to reiterate that ‘layer of subtlety’, which allows for new perspectives and new ways of thinking about that.
He has participated in diverse festivals of urban intervention and performance -as well as independent actions- in countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela.
