Blow / Una asamblea presents itself as a heterogeneous device to think alone and in company. Fictional gusts are embodied in Mariana's voice and in the bodies of four prominent actresses, acting as subtle provocations. As opposed to Brechtian procedures, Blow / Una asamblea stands out for not attempting to produce any thoughts in particular but rather find solace in daydreaming, inaccuracy and even a fallacious confusion. Is this a cynical maneuver that despises reflection and shoves it in the air? Quite the contrary, the purpose will be to focus, frame and organize the act of thinking per se, seeking it where it might adopt its best shape, that is, before acquiring a shape.
