Altérophilie or Les Jeux de force de Fritta Caro include a series of performances beginning with L’ARRACHÉ (The Snatch), an occupation of the Parc des Hommes-Forts (Saint-Henri) for which Fritta Caro's strength games will test the identities she gather.
In a tense social context where requests for recognition of various communities emerge in the cultural milieu, Caro is exposed to the clash of stereotypes and political classifications of her body ; woman, artist, immigrant, person of color, Latino, artist of the diversity, invisible minority, citizen of foreign origin.
Seeking to thwart and circumvent the pitfalls that threatens her, she questions the institutional approaches to otherness.
