An interesting crossover between dance, sport and sexuality. A play that uses body language to explore the limits of this contemporary language, with regards to movement and its subsequent interpretations. A provocation, an invitation for us to laugh at ourselves and, at the same time, to accept ourselves entirely. A mixture of acrobatics and humor. It may be seen as naive, kitsch, cliché or any of the other numerous interpretations that can be thrown at it, however it still remains a striking show of the array of man’s physical and spiritual possibilities…


The project started in 2008 when two performers were creating an act for a variety show in the Centro Cultural Laboratorio in Buenos Aires. Its initial creators, Luciano Rosso and Nicolás Poggi put together a duet with small comic touches in order to find ways within movement to show different relationships between two men, using elements of dance and also theatre. After presenting the short piece for the first time, the opportunity came up to perform it in many other spaces and festivals in the city of Buenos Aires. Some years later, they received funding which supported the completion of the full-length play. That is how everything has started…

Gloriously camp and joyous piss-take of tussling locker-room masculinity!
