Ep. 19: Quilts and Politics of Chile

Another World Episode 19

Arpilleras on Display

Arpilleras on Display

Quilts meet politics as Roberta Bacic takes on us a tour of Chilean wall hangings made during women under the Pinochet dictatorship. The quilts are not typical ones – they show village life in all its complications, including the violence, activism, and family life during the 1970s and 80s. The arpilleras have travelled around the world, having been sold and exported in order to raise money for women in Chilean villages and also to tell their stories to the outside world.

Whirling Dervishes in action

This week the program features an interview with Kemal Yilmaz, a whirling dervish who recently travelled from Turkey to perform in Belfast.  He’s been a dervish since his early teens, now he’s studying law and whirling in the meantime.

Then Jared Longlands talks about authoring anti-litter pantomimes, living the creative life, and surviving menial labor.  To see some of Jared’s writings, drawings, comics, and other creations, contact him via email, at smartturkey@hotmail.com.
