El Macho is a autoethnographic solo performance which investigates catharsis through the concept of masculinity. This work is a scenic dialogue between academic literature, theatre crafting and autobiographical material under one single question: what is a macho?

In this performance academic literature overflows performance and vice versa. Concepts as fatherhood, macho and queer overflow each other triggering a cathartic process.

El Macho should be seen as a question, an incision on an old and recurrent wound, an inquisitive autobiographical gaze, and the power of performance as a transformative process.

Created and performed by Jaime Dorner.
Video maker: Darren Valentin
Music: Ucol performing Arts Ensemble 2013 & Suzy Hawes
