Eisa Jocson

Macho Dancer

Dancer and choreographer Eisa Jocson presents a unique phenomenon by taking an artistic look into the night clubs of her home country, the Philippines: in these clubs, young men perform sexy dances and hot shows for the – both male and female – paying clients. Eisa Jocson takes on this role. Challenging both economic and sexual taboos, a fascinating world going beyond classic gender roles opens up, which serves as a framework for a clever play with the ambiguities of the situation and the rituals of seduction.
