Programme of short pieces by Pedro G. Romero to be performed in conversation with the dancer Idoia Zabaleta and "YouTube en mano". This unorthodox session will show some of Pedro G. Romero's audiovisual work and will be interspersed with videos hosted on the platform where more than five hundred hours of content are shared every minute. The conversation will revolve around themes and interests common to both artists. "This afternoon, Idoia and Pedro will be having a conversation based on links. We will link conversations based on videos and lives, gestures, positions, dances and beats. The action of linking, as well as making connections, allows us to decorate with links, in other words, to enjoy ourselves". — Idoia Zabaleta.
