A performative reading of a writer’s Open Letter to the Military Junta.
Unmissable text of a historical moment and testimony with a current impact, a writer’s Open Letter to the Military Junta is offered as written background of a sound performance. Readers, singers, and musicians multiply its echoes, bringing new meaning to its various implications. A prior presentation and an ensuing debate provide a framework to the activity.
Type of activity: Meeting with the audience. Lectures and readings.
