The Pig Show is a 45 minute subversive cabaret solo show. Associative story telling meets interactive queer stand up performed by Miami’s own performance provocateur, Cuban- American Octavio Campos. The piece looks at the passing of pop culture icons, Weimar republic sex workers and dead dancers like Michael Jackson & Pina Bausch inside of a naive retelling of the story of the invasion at the Bay of Pigs in Havanna, Cuba.
Conceived and performed by
Juan Carlos Espinosa, George Gerschwin, Spolinski
