Laura Anderson Barbata and Fem Appeal join forces drawing from the traditions of performance art, burlesque, vaudeville and lecture formats. One performance resulting in a multiple perspective mash-up: “lecture hall – brainy burlesque – performance art”
Julia Pastrana, (1834-1860) an Indigenous woman born in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico was a gifted singer who performed in English, Spanish and French. Julia had a mezzo-soprano voice, played the guitar and was a graceful dancer. Julia Pastrana suffered from one of the most extreme cases of congenital generalized hypertrichosis lanuguinosa on record and from severe gingival hyperplasia. Due to her condition, her face and body were covered with thick hair and her jaw was disproportionately large. After her death, her body was embalmed and was exhibited extensively throughout Europe and the United States for over 100 years and later kept at the Schreiner Collection in the University of Oslo, Norway.
In response to Julia Pastrana, Anderson Barbata initiated research, correspondence with University Scholars and The National Committee for Ethical Evaluation of Research on Human Remains in Oslo, Norway to present the case of Julia Pastrana before the committee for re-evaluation, with the objective of having her body be returned to Mexico for burial. After nearly 10 years of efforts, in February 2013, at the University of Olso, Norway, custody of Julia Pastrana was transferred to Mexican officials; Anderson Barbata represented Mexico. Julia Pastrana’s burial took place on the 12th of February in Sinaloa de Leyva, Mexico.
