SOLO for PINA is an homage to the dancetheater choreographer Pina Bausch who's sudden death in
2009 inspired this chamber work full of the base emotion that drives the work of Bausch - The human condition in all its vulnerability, power and fragility.
about THE PIG SHOW
"This slightly subversive performance is a celebration of freedom, through the eyes of a gay pig. Through variations of interpretive dance, performer Octavio Campos describes the 50th anniversary of the US invasion of Cuba’s Bay of Pigs. Campos presents a flotsam and jetsam of dance theater. American flags, metallic outfits and cigar smoking pigs, harmonised into a coherent story through cutting edge choreography. This is not your average night at theatre, but it packs a punch. Fun, shocking, relevant, and grossly entertaining." Art Group Melbourne
The full solo is 50 minutes.
