Unique to the Philippines, macho dancing is performed by young men in night clubs for female and male clients.

In this solo performance, contemporary female dancer Eisa Jocson challenges perceptions of sexuality and gender by performing the male dominated macho dance and appropriating it for herself.

Macho Dancer is engrossing and powerful with a soundtrack to die for.

Ms. Jocson’s androgynous beauty, paired with the control she uses to undulate her torso or to spin forward on a knee, is stunning. New York Times
