Mon Laferte has announced a tour in support of her celebrated new album Autopoiética. The live show will bring this album born of reinvention and creative freedom to the stage.
The Autopoiética Tour will begin on February 29, 2024, in Puebla and continue throughout March through Toluca, Querétaro, Monterrey, Tijuana, Mérida, Guadalajara, and Mexico City. In April, the artist will make the journey south to Central America with shows in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica, Honduras, and Guatemala. During May and June, the tour will cross the United States.
Mon has said that this tour will include music from all eight albums and will be much more theatrical than previous tours. It promises to be full of surprises as Mon is an artist who builds small worlds within her artistry: the composition, video clips, musical production of her songs, and on-stage elements are always integrated.
It all makes up her universe and that of Autopoiética will be one of the most audacious she has built. “I feel like I’m my most confident ever in myself and in my music. I have a clarity that I didn’t have before. I’m also becoming less prejudiced. ‘The devil knows more because he’s old than because he’s the devil,’ they say. I suppose there is some of that,” she says.
The new album is highlighted by singles such as “NO+SAD,” which was presented along with a wild and powerful video from Chilean director Camila Grandi, filmed in the town of Tepito. “The video talks about Mon’s overexposure to such a level that we make it a metaphor of her objectification, as if she were a piece of food,” says the director. “Las Gardenias” make a stellar appearance as well. The group has been active for 50 years as a transvestite and transsexual soccer team, because existing and resisting is a political act, not only in Tepito, but around the entire continent and planet.
