Artemorfosis es una serie documental que muestra las metamorfosis de distintos artistas en la tarea de co-crear obras que tienen como punto de partida el presente caótico. Artistas de distintos medios (teatro, danza, rap, poesía, graffiti, pintura, música, performance, entre otros) se encuentran para meditar sobre el oficio, para co-crear obras que nos ayudan a expresarnos, pensarnos, observarnos, cuidarnos y entendernos. ¿Qué puede hacer el arte para catalizar el presente? ¿Para crear nuevos mundos a partir del caos y al hacerlo ayudarnos a recrear el mundo en que vivimos? Esas son las preguntas principales que los artistas responderán con su arte.
