ABOUT THE WORK
Three solos for male dancers set to songs popularized by “the king of cool,” Dean Martin. PACOPEPEPLUTO shows Alejandro Cerrudo’s skill at balancing aesthetic austerity and sharp wit. This work dares viewers to nakedly and joyfully embrace their true self-expression. It is performed in dim lighting and contains partial nudity with male dancers in dance belts.
