Synopsis: The 8th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute sought to examine the broad intersections between urban space, performance and political/artistic action in the Americas. From the critical poetics of body art to the occupation of public space by social movements, the event invited participants to explore the borders, identities and practices through which subjectivities, hegemonies and counter-hegemonies are constructed in the spaces of the city and beyond. Carmelita Tropicana's trasnocheo cabaret performance is a retelling of Memorias de la Revolucion, with Sor Juana poems and a German/English/Spanish song medley.
