Virgin Cabaret (2003)

Carmelita Tropicana is the Emcee of the ‘Virgin Cabaret’ during the Hemispheric Institute 4th Encuentro ‘Spectacles of Religiosities’ held at New York University in 2003. This cabaret offers artists and participants a chance to ‘come as their favorite virgin,’ in a play on religion, sexuality, and the prevailing belief in miracles. The cabaret included ‘Sermon of Seven or More Words’ by Susana Cook, ‘On the Immaculate Conception of a Flower’ by Angeles Romero, ‘The Virgin of Perpetual Security’ by Roberto and Lian Sifuentes, and presentations by Edmundo Torres, Marga Gómez and Marianela Boán.
