CASSANDRO, EL EXOTICO
EXOTICOS VS. LUCHADORES
A proposal by Marie Losier
After Tony Conrad, Alan Vega or Genesis P-Orridge, director Marie Losier draws a portrait of Cassandro El Exotico, a drag q ueen Lucha Libre champion (Mexican wrestling). In the context of the film shoot and as part of his last tour before a two-year break, Cassandro will set up a fighting ring at the Fondation Cartier for a spectacular show opposing Los Exoticos verses Los Luchadores, presented by the fantastical master of ceremony, Louise de Ville.
Following the game, an encounter between the artists and the audience will be a chance to discover the story of this unusual character and delve into the world of Mexican wrestling.
With: Cassandro and Los Luchadores (Niebla Roja, Diva Salvaje, Magnus and Puma King). Barbara Carlotti, Mathilde Chenin, Louise de Ville, Sheila Donovan, Simon Fravega, Marie Losier and many other guests.
