Synopsis: Video documentation of Mónica Cabrera's performance 'El sistema de la víctima' ('The Victims System') presented as a part of the 6th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, celebrated in June of 2007 in Buenos Aires, Argentina under the title CORPOLÍTICAS en las Américas: Formaciones de Raza, Clase y Género / Body Politics in the Americas: Formations of Race, Class and Gender. Mónica Cabrera is an Argentinean director, actress and writer whose trajectory has included classical theater, popular theater and childrens theater. As an actress, she works in theater, film, television and advertising. 'El sistema de la víctima' laughs at a problem that afflicts the population: the feeling of being a victim -of not being able to deal with circumstances, or not being able to deal with a secret nature that forces us to complain. This video includes a post-performance discussion with the artist.
