Stereotypical clichés and common attributions are the choreographic and discursive targets of Josep Caballero García. Before he became a choreographer himself, he danced for the likes of Pina Bausch and Urs Dietrich, where his graceful physicality didn’t quite fit the preconceived image of masculinity. Since then he has slaved away challenging social preconceptions of body image in subversive and entertaining choreography. After the performance T/HE/Y about dealing with images of masculinity, YBRIDE deals with the phenomenon of  ‘hybrid identities’, i.e. people who do not clearly conform to cultural ‘norms’ or gender identities. The starting point is the biographies of the performers and the exploration of folk dances in their different ‘native cultures’. The latter serve as a kind of projection film, on which we can experience the deviations and individual alternative concepts of each of the performers. Before a background of an increasingly isolating identity policy, García reveals the normalising power of folk dances and devises a smart and amusing counter-model.
