Astrid Hadad: I Am Made in Mexico
From Message
Kelly Hargraves

December 29, 2017    

Presented as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA
With outrageous wearable art, fierce Mexico-City performance art diva Astrid Hadad mixes feminism and fabulosity in extravagant events featuring a live band. Hadad confronts politics, Mexican hypocrisy, machismo, and corruption in cabaret-style productions that prompted The New York Times to describe her as “one of the most provocative stage acts since the Weimar Republic was in bloom.” Hadad is also a social critic, historian, and activist, whose unconventional vocal and visual performance style is filled with music dubbed “Heavy Nopal” (after the cactus juice for Tequila), combining ranchera, bolero, rumba and rock, and featuring extravagant costumes, which have become a hallmark of her performances. This Mexican cultural icon has inherited a uniquely Mexican female surrealism and created her own that pulses with campy humor and irony.
