Un Poyo Rojo

Un Poyo Rojo

Centaur Theatre

September 24-29 2018

What words can I use to critique a show that has no spoken words? The play is performed by Luciano Rosso and Nicolas Poggi entirely in mime. The laughs abound throughout the entire performance which takes place in a gym locker room where two men vie for each other’s attention. Un Poyo Rojo has performed to sold-out audiences for over ten years in Argentina. In 2015 the show set out to conquer the rest of Latin America and Europe as it began its first world tour.

Luciano Rosso, trained in five styles of dance is a true star in his own country. Nicholas Poggi is a choreographer and performer who uses his body’s elasticity as a scenic medium and the two mesh magically throughout this pantomime as they demonstrate their prowess at dance and gymnastics.

Congratulations to the director, Hermes Gaido, a celebrated stage director, graduate of the Buenos Aires Art Academy.

I recommend this play to anyone who enjoys a good laugh.
