Lourdes is a new work developed from a residency in Tepito, Mexico, centring upon a discussion with a market trader called Lourdes. Interviewed about her experience of running the stall and the politics of the barrio, Lourdes’ dry and humorous responses elucidate her influence and situation as a woman in the marketplace and within wider society, describing the strategies the female community use in their attempts to destabilise power. In her discussion of Albures, a form of double entendre laden speech specific to Mexico, a non oppositional form of resistance posited around vulgarity and pleasure is traced.
