Celebrating the LGBTQI+ community progress towards equal rights is essential, but there are still 72 countries where homosexuality is outlawed. In some of them, the penalty is death. GlitterGods/Stigma presents the contrast between two different realities: acceptance and discrimination.
The piece focuses on the friction between opposing experiences: freedom and oppression, pride and shame, love and hate… Jesus De Vega invites the audience to experience a catwalk in which these contrasting experiences play out.
Through a set of restrictions (physical, spatial, rhythmical...) the performers expose their quest to find their freedom, their way to shine, their strengths and their fragilities.
GlitterGods/Stigma is an ode to love and acceptance, a thank you to the LGBTQI+ figures that fight for equal rights.
