#Taboo (2017)

voice, viola da gamba, and percussion

Duration: 10 minutes

Performed by Brenda Rodríguez Cortés (voice), Natalia Álvarez-Arenas (percussion) and Israel Castillo (viola da gamba).

"On the afternoon of Saturday, April 23, a Colombian columnist and her Mexican colleague put out the call on Twitter for women to post about their first time being sexually harassed. The hashtag, #miprimeracoso, or #myfirstharassment, took off.

The April 24 marches and #miprimeracoso have given women a sense of solidarity in a struggle that they often feel they have to face alone. By sharing their stories, Mexican women challenge the normalization of gender violence and taboos against discussing sexist behavior."
