UN POYO ROJO

Poyo Rojo in association with Aurora Nova

Argentina

In an empty locker room, two men play with movement, an analogue radio and tiny shorts. The athletic bodies of Luciano Rosso and Alfonso Barón move fluently from wrestling to dance, acrobatics to physical comedy in an irresistible distortion of the expectations of manhood. A funny, raw, playful hour interspersed with competitiveness and camaraderie as well as seduction and sabotage, that showcases the best of Argentinian contemporary dance.

 

Hilarious, technically mind-blowing piece which calls itself physical theatre but defies genre
★★★★★Broadway Baby

A tour-de-force takedown of virile peacocking, performed with adroit and irresistable comic timing and charisma by Alfonso Baron and Luciano Rosso.
The Stage

Un Poyo Rojo doesn't just arch a brow at masculinity, it takes a cigarette from it, then blows smoke in its face.

ABOUT UN POYO ROJO

Un Poyo Rojo is an interesting crossover between dance, sport and sexuality. The play uses body language to explore the limits of this contemporary language, with regards to movement and its subsequent interpretations. It is a provocation and an invitation for us to laugh at ourselves and, at the same time, to accept ourselves entirely. Un poyo rojo (A Red Stone Bench), is a mixture of acrobatics and humour. 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.
