Rehearsals for Future Actions

MARCH & MAY, 2011

 

 

 

Boston, MA

Taking place at the Boston City Hall on March 11, 2011, the project consisted of Negrete performing a solo rehearsal sit-in titled Rehearsal Sit-in to Decipher an Illegible Punishment as a way to interrogate the invisible punishing machine and imagine ways to use these kinds of civic places. From this action, she created a poetic performance and speech act for the video-performance and YouTube playlist titled “Rehearsals for Future Actions” presented as the 3rd part of her Thesis Project: when the invisible punishing machine is everywhere…The Weight I Carry with Me, on May 18, 2011.
