For centuries, monstrousness has served as a means to imagine otherness, and in so doing has provided little places of refuge from which to put normality into crisis. Paul B. Preciado, 2020

CRUCE (meaning “Crossing”) is the physical tale of a transformation – in the sense of a transition, a migration, a passage – in search of liberated bodies.

In this piece, Marcos Arriola celebrates the dancefloor as a space of protest and resistance. CRUCE allows the bodies of 5 dancers to liberate themselves, freed from the weight of the racial and sexual symbolisms of our societies. It prompts us to question identity. The body is political, a strategic location from which to revolutionise the norms of sexuality, gender and race.

CRUCE is a joyful and exuberant call for a performative act of radical change.
