Adiós a El Hábito (2005)

Adiós a El Hábito (2005) HIDVL

Cabaret event by renowned artists Jesusa Rodríguez and Liliana Felipe, a farewell gathering celebrating the 15-year trajectory of their Teatro Bar El Hábito. The legendary performance venue was originally opened in 1954 by Mexican poet Salvador Novo as an agora for artistic expression. Acquired and ran by Rodríguez and Felipe since 1990, El Hábito was transformed into a hotbed for intellectuals, feminists, gay rights activists and open-minded, progressive people who want to be engaged by a smart and critical humor. Singing well-known songs by Felipe, reminiscing about events of the past 15 years, and "passing the torch" to the new owners of the performance space (the theater-cabaret ensemble Reinas Chulas -Ana Francis Mor, Cecilia Sotres, Marisol Gasé, and Nora Huerta), Jesusa and Liliana celebrate the closing of a period of their fruitful trajectory together, leaving us with a provocative aphorism: "lo más difícil de quitarse es un hábito."
