A few weeks ago, Lido Pimienta won the 2017 Polaris Prize. Her first post-Polaris performance took place at last weekend’s Venus Fest, a music festival “in the spirit of feminism.”

During her Venus Fest performance, Pimienta told the story that she tells in the middle of the “La Capacidad” video: a story about having her clothing choices policed in the context of an abusive relationship.

Check out the lyrics to “La Capacidad,” with English translation, here.
