CHOCA by Jose Ramon Corral + Alberto Hiromoto
'Choca' is a dance performance narrating the story of two cholos who struggle with feelings of romance towards each other. These hyper masculine figures are queered and subverted through movement, until they give in to their feelings.
Choca is a treaty on affects. That’s right, another one. Choca is an exorcism: a container of our experiences about, after, against, along, among, around, at, because of, before, behind, below, beneath, beside, between, beyond, by, concerning, despite, for, from, in, in front of, inside, in spite of, near, of, on, onto, outside, over, past, regarding, since, through, throughout, toward, underneath, upon, with, within, without, with regard to and with respect to masculinity. Choca is an essay on the affects between two men, named as such by themselves, or by something outside of them, or by both at the same time. Choca means to cry
