Latin American Political Chants

Latin American Political Chants

18 May 2009

This workshop, led by artist Leandro Cardoso, is rooted in Chilean politics of the 1970s, and invites its participants to come together and chant, re-enacting historical events with their own voices and exploring the remoteness of a foreign language.

In 1970, Salvador Allende was the first Marxist on the American continent to become an elected national leader, and before his socialist government was prematurely ended, Chile saw a flowering of the culture of street politics, including political speeches and chants.

Running time is approximately two hours
