Almodovar Dystopia Performance

With his Queer-Puerto-Rican Cha-Cha-Heels Shaman identity as a point of departure, choreographer Antonio Ramos explores themes related to gender diversity and ‘sub-class’ conflicts. Using personal stories and identities, the company creates exaggerated personas that explore the challenges, anxieties and neuroses that the process of making dance conjures. By aligning, juxtaposing and smashing these characters up against each other in an environment full of glamour and decadence, Ramos’ penetrating movement vocabulary creates a shockingly hysterical world evocative of Almodóvar’s most outrageous characters.

Dancers: Alvaro Gonzalez Dupuy, Luke Miller, Angie Pittman, Sarah White-Ayon, Darrin Wright, Awilda Lora.
