Their first ever theatrical commission, CircX Stripped was an introspective look into the entertainment industry, and how they navigate through it both as artists and women. Thanks to the Miami Light Project, who selected their piece, for 2008 Here and Now Festival, they were able to take the creative risks that they typically self-censor when producing for commercial clients.
Incorporating stripper poles and toilet bowls they created dance theatre choreographies that examined the relationships between themselves, and the demands of an industry that goes against what they try to represent.
Adopting the dance theatre process, they used their personal life journey as raw material to create this work, confronting issues like eating disorders and body dysphoria. The result was what critiques called, " grotesquely funny and disturbing; powerful stuff."
Diana Lozano's CircX Stripped was the gutsiest, most challenging and most revealing - in more ways than one... grotesquely funny and disturbing; powerful stuff.
