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
