28 Sep Macho Man XXI by Tania Perez Salas (Mexico) Out in the Tropics
FUNDarte and Miami Dade County Auditorium present the premiere in Miami of Macho Man XXI, by Tania Pérez-Salas Dance Company (Mexico) May 4th at 8.30p.m. & 5th at 3:00 p.m. | Mid-Stage at Miami Dade County Auditorium (2901 W Flagler St., Miami, FL 33135). This presentation is part of the Series Out in the Tropic (OITT).
With a sense of humor and intense physical imagery, Macho Man XXI tackles the effects of gender violence taking place in the chaotic, surreal and exotic culture of Mexico. In riveting and craftily gender-coded dance, the powerful and daring work pulls up fear by its roots, revealing the submissive and perverted state of this social legacy, ever apparent in the media, contemporary beauty standards and their underlying violence.
