Liliana Felipe in Concert (2007)

"Kinda decent, kinda slutty, but we're The Bosses, buddy." Liliana Felipe (www.elhabito.com.mx) is a composer, singer, gardener, tango musician, and clergyphobe. She left Argentina for Mexico just before the military coup in 1976, but her sister and brother-in-law remain among the 30,000 disappeared. This video documents Liliana Felipe's concert 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." Liliana Felipe performs her repertoire, following the many absences left in the wake of Argentina's last dictatorship. Guest performer is her partner (in life, in art), Mexican performer and activist Jesusa Rodríguez.
