Secos & Mojados

Performing Arts, 2009



Secos & Mojados

Secos y Mojados is a San Francisco-based collective focusing their work on immigrant narratives and explorations of interdisciplinary performance. Spanish for “the dry ones and wet ones,” their name is inspired by the effect that clandestine border crossings, through deserts, rivers and sea, have on the body of the migrant, but are interested in “border crossings” of any kind, ultimately relating to the interconnectedness of identities and places. Secos’ artists embark on the practice of performance grounded on their experiences in theater, music, and performance art, moved by the realization that all creative disciplines are unique and also share common principles, and set out to research the connections that exist between them, and the social reality where they, and us, live and resonate. Their work aims to develop a language for a more nuanced expression of the place that “the migrant” occupies in an inclusive social imaginary.
