Synopsis: Fragments of 'Monólogo de Culo, Dale Papito, y La Chupada Antiimperialista,' by Nadia Michelle Granados, La Fulminante, were presented as a part of the 8th International Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. This Encuentro was held in January of 2013 - the year of Hemi’s 15th anniversary - in São Paulo, Brazil, under the title CITIES | BODIES | ACTION: The Politics of Passion in the Americas. This event brought together activism, scholarship, and art towards the exploration of urban sites as areas of coexistence, conflict, and collaboration. 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. The vast array of performances, exhibits, roundtables, workshops, lectures and work groups of this Encuentro were particularly interested in the ways in which bodies both interpellate and are interpellated, mobilize and are mobilized, by and around the diverse and complex ‘passions’ that are so defining of our globalized and mediatized present - fear, hatred, disenchantment, hope and faith, among others.Nadia Michelle Granados performs live re-creations of audiovisual materials, playing with obscene language, sexual material, and emancipatory content. She touches on themes related to globalization, the anti-imperialist struggle, and against the model of power relations imposed by the machismo that is so ingrained in Latin America.Nadia Michelle Granados, La Fulminante, is a Colombian artist interested in the arts of space, movement, and the body such as video, pornography, magic, installation, and performance. Her work is characterized by the resignification of content extracted from mass media, mixed with themes related to the antiglobalization struggle. www.lafulminante.com
