Item Description...
Angora Matta is a bilingual (Spanish/English) and interdisciplinary work that adopts performative writing to reflect on the transnational politics of culture. Part I is an introduction co-authored by a tango-opera librettist and a central character in her libretto, offering two contending versions of how this book came into being. Part II is the libretto for the tango-opera Angora Matta, a critical view of Argentina's contemporary history conceived as a surreal and tragic thriller. Part III contains feminist scholarly essays written by three other characters who appear in the libretto: Elvira Diaz is a dance ethnographer disenchanted with her profession; Manuela Malva is a biting foreign-film critic invested in de-mystifying exotic renderings of the Argentine tango world; Angora Matta, the assassin for hire, closes the book with philosophico-poetic preoccupations about her profession. An innovative blend of scholarship and art, Angora Matta is both critique of and antidote to the representational practices of ethnography that have fetishized "other" cultures by isolating them from contemporary history and the global flow of international politics.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Strives to present an often oversimplified culture  Oct 7, 2003
Angora Matta: Fatal Acts Of North-South Translation by anthropologist and political theorist Marta Elena Savigliano (Professor, UCLA Department of World Arts & Culture) is a "tango-opera" exploring views of the history of Argentina even as it follows the turmoil involving a deadly female assassin, as sensed and charted by a gifted medium. The opera performance enriches as it strives to present an often oversimplified culture, and the metaphors weaving the breadth of the work circle about the human inner striving to express and impress. Angora Matta is a unique, unforgettable, and highly recommended contribution to Latin American Cultural Studies collections and reading lists.
