WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Commissioned by Dixon Place, Almodóvar Dystopia, by the renowned downtown dance artist Antonio Ramos and his outrageous company, the Gangbangers, is part Latino-flavored tribute to the Spanish film director, part humorous celebration of LGBT culture, and part bold political statement against the body-negative and repressed nature of the world we live in. Featuring video, movement, spoken word, and gourmet surprise, the piece makes its case for the affirmation of all things physical through Ramos' trademark chaotic and joyful storytelling style. Parental guidance strongly cautioned.
