Octavio Campos's New Multimedia Meditation

The Bugchasers. From Oct 25th through Oct 27th, 2007. 8:00 p.m.

Octavio Campos. Miami Art News Having received rave reviews last season for his dance-theater drama Kitchen Monkey, Miami-based artist Octavio Campos premieres his newest work The Bugchasers at Carnival Center for the Performing Arts from October 25th through 27th, 2007. Sensual and violent yet hilarious, The Bugchasers is a dance-theater meditation on sex, lies, and death-wish eroticism. Through high-intensity visuals and provocative texts, the Camposition Ensemble, directed by Campos, tells a dark story of those who would risk their lives to achieve a twisted sense of intimacy. Gay and straight, male and female – anyone could be a Bugchaser.

Featuring a cast of local performers ranging in age from teens to early sixties,The Bugchasers examines “love” in contemporary culture and explores the world of Bugchasers – men who seek to become HIV positive. Through video projections, gripping choreography and in-your-face performance, Bugchasers questions whether the human need for belonging and contact has led to a new eroticism or become a monstrous force for self-annihilation.
