Nicolás Dumit Estévez: The More I Dance Fran Pollitt

The More I Dance (Endurance Piece)

Clad in skimpy Speedos, Estévez embodies Machete, a male vedette who dances night after night during the Encuentro, and whose marathon-like action poses the questions: The more Machete dances, what? The More Latin America dances, what? The more one watches Latin America dance, what? Cockiness and humor collide in a pulsating endurance piece that runs the risk of succumbing to exhaustion.
