16 years and older. Contains passages on sexualised violence and trade with colonial goods.

As positive and energetic as the Reggaeton beat might be, its lyrics often contain violent and sexist imagery. In this performance, Daniela Ruocco relentlessly and yet with sensitivity deals with this contradiction and with her identity as a «Latina». In doing so, she develops alternatives for a new, feminist interpretation of the world of Reggaeton music that she can relate to as an artist.

What begins as an exclusive record release gradually transforms into a surreal lecture-performance and ends in a concert-like mass. It all leads to the creation of glamorous, unimagined role models that can be stuck into a feminist Reggaeton album like Panini stickers. The performance is a glamorous, feminist alternative to the sexist and violent culture that exists in the world of Reggaeton music.

Lo que empieza como lanzamiento de un álbum exclusivo se transforma, paso a paso, en una performance surrealista y desemboca en una especie de misa musical. Se crearán glamurosos personajes que se podrán pegar como figuritas en un álbum Panini de Reguetón feminista.
