Entrevidas (1981/2017)
Performance. "Anna Maria Maiolino." MOCA Grand Avenue. Los Angeles, CA. November 5, 2017. 
Duration: 40:00.

In 1981, Anna Maria Maiolino performed Entrevidas (Between Lives) in response to the military
dictatorship in Brazil. In a literalization of the saying "walking on eggshells," Maiolino
traversed a minefield of raw eggs, attempting to keep all eggs whole in the process. Due to
the differing social, cultural, and political contexts in which I re-performed Entrevidas, I
danced  folklorico, Mexican folk dancing, while dressed in the traditional costume, actively
crushing the eggs rather than avoiding them. I danced to one song, La Negra, repeatedly, as
it is the only dance I can (partially) remember from my folklorico lessons as a child. Only
I heard the song as I listened to it from earbuds plugged into my iPhone.
