Pioneer Winter // Collective HOST

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend my colleague and friend, Pioneer Winter’s, brilliant presentation of HOSTphysical theatre performance. For me to attempt to describe in words would not do justice to such an intelligent work that truly takes you through an experience, a journey of emotions. Here is Pioneer’s description:

“HOST is an all-male physical theatre work that explores power, authority, control, isolation, and desire. Within these paths, the word ‘host’ emerges as both sexualized territory as well as a bodily struggle. ‘Host’ is layered in the queer community, where one word is weighted by both history and its digital presence – host of a dinner party, host of a game show, host to an orgy, host to a virus…
HOST by Pioneer Winter and Jared Phillip Sharon

Performers: Patrick Rodriguez, Dario Gonzalez, Alex Ortiz, Alberto Pena Jr., Pioneer Winter

Sound and composition: ABI-LI-TY”

 

Here are some of the photos captured that night with my dear friend and fellow choreographer/dancer, Ana Bolt, along side HOST creators and performer.

What an awesome night it was replete with a fashion show featuring the Haute Hippie Spring 2015 Collection and a very special performance by Neil Goldberg’s Cirque Dreams , whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with several years ago 🙂

Meanwhile, I was able to sample tasty bites by NYY Steak and other featured restaurants.
