A Closed Door That Leaves Us Guessing

We must thus go back to the very origin of Carasco's quest. She did not set out for in the late 1970s in order to rape and pillage the imaginary of the Tarahumaras, but rather to follow the traces of Antonin Artaud, to empirically verify the encounter between a sacred text of modernity and its reality.
