La Xata la Rifa on tour
Mónica Cofiño presents her Cow Show at the Supernova Performance Art Festival.
Mónica Cofiño’s La Xata Rifa, performance. Text and Dance for Cows investigates other forms of representation. It is an experimental dance piece, which takes place in stables, streets, theaters, markets and old bars. The work is for cows, with cows and other more human-like animals.
The SUPERNOVA Performance Art Festival is a Rosslyn Arts Project presented by the Rosslyn Business Improvement District (BID) and produced by The Pink Line Project. SUPERNOVA will debut June 7-9, 2013, throughout Rosslyn, Virginia, in raw spaces, office lobbies, rooftops, parks, the Metro station, and other public places.
SUPERNOVA will bring together emerging and established local, regional, national and international performance artists to present an expansive range of positions and approaches to performance art. A unique showcase of energetic artistic activity and action, SUPERNOVA is poised to establish Rosslyn as a preeminent territory for contemporary art experience.
About Mónica Cofiño
I put the cowshow in a suitcase and left. Now I’m free to dance like a cow. I see reality as a fiction. I do not differentiate between what we perceive and what we imagine. I don’t differentiate between inside and outside. Placing my work in rural places questions and reflects production processes of the art world, decontextualizing art creation through the body outside of traditional circuits—Mónica Cofiño
