pixelrave loves revolutions!
we met two South American collectives that made weapons out of their bodies and parties. Guerrilla tactiques of squatting, informal organization and nightly life stealth actions. Their language, aesthetics, stories, everything in their artistic works is revolving around their communities, they are the rising majority that is knocking down bigotry establishments on the dancefloor.
In House of Tupamaras they explore what is generally catalogued as "Mariconeo y Pluma", stigmatized and excluded gestures and movements in public places, that is why they are interested in nightlife and the party as a place of construction of knowledge and meeting between different groups. They generate nighttime encounters between the LGBTIQ+ community and the local context. They build safe and inclusive dance floors based on mutual respect.
They offer professional training spaces and practices open to the public, based on technical elements offered by Voguing, and histrionic elements of merengue (popular dances in the 80's and 90's in different contexts).
