Suku Lab Dance V I S C E R A
V I S C E R A is inspired by the psychological journey of imagination. It explores one's extreme ability to fantasize, exposing the dark vulnerable sides of the mind that are often repressed. V I S C E R A invites the audience to this artistic realism, finding beauty in extreme conflicts within fantastical situations.

"Poderoso" is about a women's mental frustration manifested in her sexual relationship. The narrator finds herself in a moment of clarity and power. She explains her dissatisfaction, frustration, and insecurities in response to her lover's emotional availability. As she realizes her role in his life serves him more than her, she also realizes something deeper about herself: the kind of relationship she requires has an emotional threshold that must be satisfied, this is the only way to determine her as an individual, an intellect, and as a sexual creature.
