This article proposes an interpretation to the configuration of bodies in their performativity in political marches and/or protests. This performativity will be analyzed from a corpus of Chilean and Argentine novels and films (2001-2015), from which it is argued that, through different aesthetics and contexts, certain collective rethorics arise, in which bodies dissociate from or take on the public and social scene of the community/crowd, inserted in postdictatorial processes, anchored in neoliberal economies. It is in this respect that concepts such as choreography, political performance and performative realization are revised, allowing the analysis of the “political” gesture of intervention or dismissal the protest scene.
