Dance and physical theater experience is helpful, but no experience is necessary if you are open to physical, emotional and spiritual exploration.

For the past two years, in affiliation with Coney Island USA ( and International Culture Lab (, Diego Piñón's Body Ritual Movement (BRM) has been directing an ensemble of dancers in a site-specific performance that develops the hybrid aesthetic ritual cabaret.

The etymology of the word "cabaret" is significant. Originally from the French describing the intimate space where humans could liberate themselves from oppression, it derives from the word "tavern" which is related to "guild" and the idea of brotherhood. We are referring here to the original cabaret, once the only place for anyone to honestly express themselves. It is opening and connecting the sacred sense to be whatever you want to be -- whatever you want to offer to others to support the evolution of our togetherness.

We open a door to the self, and community, where we are invited to remove the layers of repetition and touch the playful, the ridiculous, and those undeniable prayers of the body. Taking inspiration from Coney Islands wild history and the root significance of cabaret, we can call up that original intimate and honest space of communion.

How do you enter the stage in that honesty, in a pure state of expression? It depends on the state of truth the body can reach -- integrating the joy to move as well the pain to survive --almost presenting a naked body without judgment and mental limitations, and expressing the precarious and fragile nature of what it means to be human. My vision for the stage is to use public offerings to go beyond personal limits, beyond the ego, and without pretension renew the highest purpose of the sacred language of dance.
