    From and with: Alfredo Zinola and Jose Manuel Ortíz Ballhasu Ost, Berlin. September 2012. Festival Tanzbad IV Come to see us!: 4 October. Quinzena de Danca de Almada, Almada (PT); http://www.cdanca-almada.pt 6 October. Festival La Becquée, Brest (FR); http://labecquee.fr/ 19 October. Kilotanz Festival, Essen (DE); http://www.tanzgebiet.de/cms/ “About Josema” is a public talk that propose questions about the sexuality of a young homosexual mexican dancer: Josema. The performance develops around questions directed to Josema and mediated by Alfredo that will take care of the rhythm of the performance. The public is asked to be mentally active. At the entrance of the Theater some person of the public receive a closed envelop that has a question inside. During the performance the public will be asked to open these envelops and to ask the questions. The idea is to propose an overview about the public tendency and the public consciousness about some important themes regarding sexuality and gay world. At one moment Alfredo invites the public to ask questions by their own, to leave open a door on the personal curiosity about intimacy, because the question of a person reveal the thoughts of these person. The idea is to see how does a community reefer to these themes. Some points are coming out: the queer theory, about roles and complexity of the sexuality of a person; the relationship between sex and violence; a critique to the imposition a sexual role defined by pornography, theorized by post-porn; the necessity to understand and break stereotype related to gay life; Since intimacy is a personal matter, we find our work has a political intent.
