rosa and joey

Riverside, California

Long Beach, California

Founded in 2008, Mexican American artists Rosa Rodriguez-Frazier and Joey Navarrete create duets that point towards first generational cultural and social experiences growing up in Southern California. Navigating their body in traditional/non-traditional performance spaces, the duet collective incorporates text, singing and "movement" in their work as a way to share their social and cultural lineage. Utilizing Post Modern and Theater frameworks of performance, Rosa and Joey’s ideas revolve around un/intentional "desmadre" (messiness) that occurs in live dance/ing and the exposure of “processes” as a way to de/construct and re-purpose their dynamic partnership.
