Maria José Arjona, who performed Vault for us in 2003, as well as endurance pieces in Treading Water and at our 2011 benefit, has a new work, All the others in me, which will premiere at the VOICE gallery as a parallel project of the Marrakech Biennale. She will perform Friday, 2 March 2012, 7:30 pm, at Dar Cherifa; the opening follows on Saturday, 3 March 2012, at VOICE gallery.

In All the others in me, “the artist’s body proposes itself as a result of a metis entity which is continuously in transit, it undertakes a metaphorical travel through a series of possible and never definitive identities to remember, another time, that art exists to exceed differences and accept the diversities.” If you happen to be in Morocco in March, don’t miss this.

(And for more on Maria: be sure to watch this video, “RIGHT AT THE CENTER, THERE IS SILENCE”, which documents some of her recent work.)

Also of note: Tinariwen, who played here in November, won a Grammy Sunday night for Best World Music Album. Amazing. Now all we have to do is get Adele out here.
