Description

Returning after their internationally acclaimed world tour. Six shows only. In an empty locker room, two men play with movement, an analogue radio and tiny shorts. The athletic bodies of Luciano Rosso and Alfonso BarĂ³n 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, showcasing the best of Argentinian contemporary dance. ***** (Stage). ***** (BroadwayBaby.com). **** (Sunday Times). 'Breathtaking performance' (Le Parisien). 'The best of the best physical comedy' (Helsingin Sanomat).

Un Poyo Roco sees Argentinian dancers Luciano Rosso and Alfonso Barón in a locker room. They are in competitive spirits, dancing for one another and fighting, first as play then as dance and then for real. ...

Argentinian dance music greets us as we enter the space for two-man physical theatre experience Un Poyo Rojo, but the vast majority of the show takes place in silence.

Two Argentinian men dance and cavort playfully for an hour in a locker room with a radio and tiny shorts. That description does not do justice to the brilliance and joy of this show. Nicolas Poggi and Luciano Rossi are enormously talented performers, and they can do just about anything...
