The performance will be followed by a conversation with the choreographers.
Stuntmen and dancers, sportsmen and acrobats, Luciano Rosso and Nicolás Poggi confront and reject one another in Un poyo rojo. They face off mirroring each another, similar and different, attracted and spurned. Imagination in power invents a score for the body with a dash of spirit: virility, vanity, conflict, seduction, martial arts and variété, physicality and comedy, ambiguity and desire, hugs and battles, elastic attacks and cheerful resistance. Remaining nimbly on the edge between cultured and popular – and this is one of the hardest acrobatic acts to perform – the physical theatre of the Rosso-Poggi duo has found its current form after years of practice and refinement.
