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.
Nicolás Dumit Estévez works mainly in performance art and experiences where life and art often overlap. He has exhibited and performed extensively in the U.S. as well as internationally. Born in Santiago de los Treinta Caballeros, Dominican Republic, Estévez lives and works in the South Bronx.
