2013 - 2014 - INSPIRING ACTION


Camposition begins 2014 with loads of gratitude especially with the continued support of Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York City. During his residency in the Spring of 2013, Artistic Director, Octavio Campos created sketches for TRPL QUINCE - a solo dancetheater performance party inspired by the traditional Quince, the Hispanic coming-of-age/coming-out party for 15-year-old girls. At 45, Octavio is way beyond a traditional celebration — and as a boy, he never got a party anyway and so the flamboyantly outrageous Cuban-American performer-choreographer-director-producer is compensating by throwing himself not one but three quinces in a single performance in search of support for a premiere partners and booking agent for touring from 2014 -2018.

TRPL Quince, which will have its third showing at Baryshnikov Arts Center in January, looks nothing like the usual elaborately costumed party. Instead, Campos addresses a roiling mass of issues: his Cuban family’s refusal to accept his homosexuality and his desire to be an artist; the sometimes-troubled history of the men in his family; his reasons for making art; the looming challenges of middle age and mortality. The project was supported by Thought Loom's Synapse Performance Project - a Knight Challenge Award Grantee, which had a successful 2nd showing on October 9, 2013 at Miami Light Project's Light Box at Goldman Warehouse.

On January 12 and 13th , 2014 - Camposition will be actively soliciting co-commissioners and a booking agent at a showcase for TRPL Quince at Baryshnikov Arts Center during Association of Performing Arts Presenters conference 2014 on January 12 & 13th at 3PM and 5PM each day. For reservations please email rsvp@camposition.org.

Here is a downloadable TRPL Quince Info/Press Packet and this video below about the process of TRPL Quince in development and how you can be a part of this exciting and seminal work.



Octavio continues to work as an Artist in Residence at the Miami Theater Center and will be working on a new creation by Stephanie Ansin and Fernando Calzadilla, Everybody Drinks The Same Water, which will premiere this Spring.

For those that wish to train with Octavio Campos he is offering a Performance Lab at Miami Theater Center's intimate SandBox space on February 17 - 20th which will culminate in an informal performance.

In the Spring of 2014. He will also be facilitating FieldWork sessions as part of the Field | Miami in the Fall at Miami Dance Studio and in the Spring at ArtCenter/South Florida.

Thanks to all in advance for your support of new work initiatives here in Miami and abroad.

Sincerely,
Octavio
