HINKYPUNK is a dance work that explores the conflation between identity, iconography and pop culture. Set on a 4x4x4 foot cube, with a 360 degree original sound score and projections, the piece is seen in the round to both involve and invite the audience into the work. The sequined costume that adorns the performers is familiar yet mysterious and alluring. Throughout the performance the viewer witnesses this sequined character go through a process of creating its own identity, while bombarded by versions of itself—physically, and with light, projection and sound. The protagonist undergoes a series of physical trials to the point of exhaustion, all under a lens of humour, glamour and entertainment. Based on Ralph Escamillan’s lived experiences as a queer artist, the work examines themes of queerness, anonymity and identity expression through the body.
