Nobody Outdoes Argentina?

We’ve moved a long way past the “string someone up on hooks and swing around for a while” stage of body ritual performance. The previous entry has an obviously theatrical show, but when it comes to this sort of thing, I feel that nobody that I’ve seen outdoes the professionalism and artistry of performance teams in South America, especially Argentina — here are some pictures from a show put on by IAM:la negra and friends with the International Theatre Festival Mercosur in Cordoba.

I guess it’s a question of whether you’re there to shock, or whether you’re there to create art and music. I’m not sure that one is better than the other, but I am very happy to see the latter path being explored so well. Oh and there are more pictures from this performance on BME.
