T.I.A.D.A. Sadness, Anger and Anxiety is a non-narrative piece that describe five states of the mind and heart that LGBTQI+ persons might go through while exploring their gender and sexual identity: sadness, anger, anxiety, depersonalization and acceptance. The title is an acronym that corresponds to this five stages in Spanish: Tristeza, Ira, Ansiedad, Despersonlaizción y Aceptación - TIADA.
This section presents the images and credits of the first part of T.I.A.D.A. which corresponds to the first three scenes. The complete piece will be presented at the end of 2022, with live orchestra and the costumes originally designed by Sara Salomón.
This choreography was created to the dramaturgy by Vázquez and the Egyptian writer Mustafa Sakr, who met while being delegate artists at the Outburst Queer Arts Festival 2019, in Belfast. Vázquez and Sakr  were inspired by the experience of four close friends of the choreographer and Vázquez' own live.
