El Abrigo de Maria Teresa (Maria Teresa's Coat)

This commemorative ritual marks the 40th year after the Chilean coup d’état, in which several women disappeared. The performance is a gesture of solidarity to pay tribute to María Teresa Bustillos and all the women who believed in their ideals. Never forget. This action seeks to reconstitute a collective memory around these disappearances.


Christine Brault lives and works in Montreal, Canada. As a performance and relational aesthetics artist, granted from the Canada Arts Council, the Conseil des arts et lettres du Québec, she has presented her work in various countries of the Americas, in China and in Europe through artist residencies and international performance festivals.
