X-U is a show about exposing ones skin and sharing it. Music, choreography and some words said or signed to discover sexuality as a device of power. To inhabit the body as a territory, as a map of sensations and memories. Exploring the mandates of the communities of desire to subvert them and take ownership of our own pleasure.

Música, coreografía y algunas palabras dichas o signadas para descubrir la sexualidad como dispositivo de poder, para habitar el cuerpo como territorio, como mapa de sensaciones y memorias. Explorar los mandatos de las comunidades de deseo para subvertirlos y reapropiarnos del propio placer.Les Impuxibles
Les Impuxibles is the artistic fusion of a pianist and a choreographer. A fusion that contains the power of the artistic quality of each one separately and the harmony of the bond that unites them. Clara and Ariadna Peya; sisters, creators and performers. We work the mixture of languages. A search that fuses music and movement with other scenic disciplines. An investigation that never ends and that has led us to the construction of our own language. The social commitment has made us grow in the need to use art as a speaker of denunciation and social change, positioning ourselves in a policy of equality.Biographies
