In their first ever collaboration, Gabriel and Adrian combine their passion for movement and storytelling to explore the intersections and complexities of their experiences as queer Latinx men. Drawing from their real life, they expose, contemplate, and challenge the notions of homophobia, racism, and colorism that they have and continue to experience. Their art explores their journey of Latinidad, processes cultural norms and traditions, and prioritizes authenticity and vulnerability.
Through a series of both scripted and unscripted scenes, Gabriel and Adrian invite the audience on an intimate adventure where they recreate their vision of theater as an experience more accessible to brown and queer people. They replace traditional formalities and opt for a more improvised engagement approach with audience members, producing unique art in real time.
