A powerful new full-length duet exploring sexuality, gender and identity, EXpose brings together two exceptional male solo artists: Vancouver’s own Alvin Erasga Tolentino, Artistic Director of Co. ERASGA, whose sophisticated works have toured around the world; and Complot’s Martin Inthamoussú, a driving force in Uruguay’s contemporary dance scene, whose passionate works grapple with provocative socio-political ideas. These two charismatic performers seek to expose the complexity of the personal and public territories within the gay psyche, creating a spellbinding theatrical and physical dialogue featuring an original score by Marc Stewart, video production by Eric Miguel and lighting design by Phil Birkby.
EXpose is a personal, intimate duet journeying personal paths, sharing voices and peeling the layers of past and present, exposing the complexity, vulnerability, acceptance and inspiration of being gay. “Today gay people suffer dissonant confrontations at home, in schools and society in general that have triggered violence, hate, and death”, states Tolentino, “EXpose is our attempt to question, express and celebrate the experience of gay life – to make ourselves visible and to confront fear using dance”.
