"Spiritual Boyfriends" is a solo performance about body-power relationships and their structures. The work of Núria Guiu Sagarra is based on an iconographic investigation of the historical construction of yoga postures as well as autobiographical material around the subject of affection and desire. In a discourse about spirituality, Sagarra reveals categories such as power and control as reciprocal forces that are both imposed on and intrinsically generated by bodies. Digitally, she creates an additional space in which impulses are released in a drug-like manner in the form of a collective psychotropic, evoking the notion of the soul as a divine entity that releases the materiality of the body in a fleeting, virtual, informative, and energetic way. At the same time, it raises questions about the role of the Internet with its techniques of control and surveillance in relation to the divine, to immateriality, love, power, and to neoliberal politics.
