Arthur Avilés Typical Theater: Puerto Rican Faggot from the South Bronx Steals Precious Object from Giuliani's East Village (2000)

Arthur performs a series of flowing and spinning movements in a shimmering golden dress to live percussion. The movements made with the costume reflect the imagery of pioneering modern dancer and choreographer Martha Graham. Arthur makes different shapes and poses with the costume. Here he moves the top portion of the shimmering golden dress, using it as a stage to perform a set of gestures. Nude, Arthur increases the momentum of his movement phrasing across the dance floor for the rest of the performance.
