Her Voice Rises: World Premiere Performance of Instructions for HOLDing Up (instrucciones de SOStén)
February 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
Free and open to the public.
Performed from Buenos Aires and streamed for the public via Zoom. Q&A to follow.
A woman holds a kite string that stretches to the sky, she speaks to herself with verbiage for a news media outlet in the capital. It’s a suburban wasteland that could be any city. During various months she comes to HOLD Up this “utopia,” and with some complications the community supports her and helps. A poetic and theatrical performance, this new work emerged during MAT’s experience with the obligatory social isolation of the coronavirus pandemic. They have worked through this moment to maintain continuity with a series of encounters via Zoom, continuing even now, to collectivize our knowledges and carry out artivist actions virtually. Instructions for HOLDing Up is a subtle recipe for how we can create and maintain connections of solidarity and sisterhood. Dramaturgy: Claudia Quiroga. Acting: Leticia Torres.
