Disruptors in Residence

Poncho & Penelope

Poncho & Penelope

Poncho Orange and Penelope are a tumultuously passionate partnership with a fruity flare for fiestas. Poncho has been known to wander and get lost from time to time with his head in the clouds, thankfully Penelope can snap him back down to earth with just a click of the fingers! Just like their Latin blood, their spicy relationship has been known to bubble and boil at times. This chaotic couple dance their way through the world, and when it comes to problem solving they let their feet do the talking, turning any area into a Latin lovers dance floor. 

Poncho and Penelope will be disrupting HOTA’s public spaces with their fiery energy and salsa dancing, samba spinning chaos 13-16 July, including during HOTA's UNDERGROUND Festival. If you see them, grab a pic and tag @hotagc @danicabs to share your encounter.
