Abstract:

In this political-poetical-philosophical-musical cabaret performance, Jesusa Rodríguez and Liliana Felipe take on Mexicos electoral climate in order to pose a comment on ethics, politics, Mexican folklore and pop culture. Rodríguez populates the scenario of the palenque (cockpit, a place for popular gambling games like cockfighting) with chameleonic characters Chona Schopenhauer (the only ranchera philosopher), Pita Amor (an old-fashioned, affected performer of poetry) and Don Andrés Soler (a very macho, politically conservative old man), among others, through which she criticizes the corruption and violence associated with Mexicos political climate. In a phenomenology of fortuitous becoming, the universe is portrayed as a palenque where anything could happen, and Mexican electoral processes as a gamble. In this vein, and interspersed with parodic renditions of traditional folk songs by Rodríguez and sexy ranchera Isela Vega (a famous Mexican vedette), the audience is invited to play a satirical Mexican lotería (with cards like The Wetback, The Zapatista, The First Lady, and The ATM substituting the traditional icons of this popular game) and to gamble, control, and judge an electoral cockfight where puppets of political candidates race to be the first to reach the finishing line of presidency.
