Francisca Benitez’s “Residency / Resistance”: Open Rehearsal

February 8, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Francisca Benitez returns to El Museo del Barrio’s residency program with a new proposal that aims to focus on the power of the collective through music. The artist’s new project, Residency / Resistance: trilingual choir (ASL, English, Spanish), comes out of a response to today’s times: the choir will be trilingual, with participants singing in ASL, English and in Spanish. The idea is to gather and share the common experience and effects of singing classics like Power to the People and No Nos Moverán as well as allow through the process to collectively compose new songs that would be sung a Capella with the artist throughout her residency at El Museo, culminating with a public performance on the closing day of her residency March 5th.

Join Francisca at the museum for an open rehearsal of her performance project on Wednesday, February 8 from 4 – 6PM.
