Using animation as a performance technique, Griselda was born from the interest of bringing to life something that is already alive–that something being Denisse. Which brings to mind, why would anyone need to be a different person? Hyperbolizing (or animating) her own personality with the hope to debase and mock stereotypes, Denisse also becomes someone else, someone that could say anything and everything on her mind and keep the audience at a safe distance. 

Denisse Griselda Reyes started performing as her alter-ego, Griselda, in 2016 and directed the short film “Griselda: Episode 1.” This mockumentary acts as an artist profile of the director’s alter-ego: the (then) upcoming performance artist, Griselda.
