Astrid Hadad: MADE IN MEXICO


This is a tour through Mexico’s history from Astrid’s point of view: humorous, irreverent, but also well-documented. Carried by slaves, Astrid takes us from the ancient Mexico of Tenochtitlan to the present, doing justice to the memory of women forgotten by history, and using laughter as a powerful weapon of optimism.


Astrid Hadad is an actress, director, and singer who has developed her own style of cabaret, known as “Heavy Nopal.” She performs popular repertoires, adding texts and songs that she composes and performs, and using costumes she designs for visual effect (with as many as 13 costume changes in a single show). She has presented her performances across the globe.
