Amores Pelos (2001) HIDVL

In this video documentation of Astrid Hadad 's performance 'Amores Pelos', costumed in her signature wearable art, Hadad blends popular songs and ranchero, son and bolero music and political satire with highly theatrical precision to create a genre of music she calls 'Heavy Nopal'. Her work takes on the stereotypes of Mexican culture and reframes them to comment on the forms of machismo in a variety of local and global contexts.

The following is video documentation of Astrid Hadad's 2001 performance in Mexico City, Mexico and her performance at the 2nd Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, celebrated in June of 2001 in Monterrey, Mexico under the title 'Memory, Atrocity and Resistance'.
