Macho Dancing, with its specific movement vocabulary and physicality, is a unique phenomenon in the Philippines. It is exclusively performed by young men in nightclubs for male – as well as female – clients. Choreographer Eisa Jocson takes on this phenomenon, transcending gender boundaries by performing a macho dance.

Eisa Jocson will share the movement system that she has developed with the participants in this workshop. They will explore the basic structure of the masculine body in macho dancing. It is suitable for participants over 18 years of age and does not require any dancing knowledge in advance.
