¡Caballeros! presented by AGDT
¡Caballeros! is a Bomba/Rap/Movement examination of homophobia, violence, machismo, vulnerability and everyone's need for somebody-hood.
"Are we Caballeros sin caballo?
Jibaritos without mules?
Or ridiculous macho fools?"
And reflects on my experience that:
"For me, Machismo is not an 'ism.
I'm not gonna fear manhood.
I think he has to know who is him
And believe he can be good."
¡Caballeros! is by Marcos de Jesús, featuring Jon Panikar and oral history from Abe Cáceres, PHD, being presented in Annabella Gonzalez Dance Theatre, originally developed Wilson La Antigua, of Bombayo.
It will be featured in a free show supported by the Central Park Conservancy:
Dana Discovery Center
Inside Central Park near 110th Street, between Malcom X Blvd and 5th Ave
Sunday, June 24th, 2pm
¡Caballeros! is first on the program, so please come early.
