Ponencia by Javier Robledo
The title of this performance has several meanings based on the word itself and the performance gestures. On the one hand ‘ponencia’ is translated in the dictionary as ‘lecture’, as well as being related to the verb ‘poner’ e.g. ‘poner un huevo’ (to lay an egg). On the other hand, the whole performance is a literal translation of the Argentinian familiar expression ‘poner los huevos sobre la mesa’, which means ‘to have courage or bravery’ to do something. Javier Robledo is an Argentinian video and performance poet and creator of videoBardo videopoetry festival.
