ALL THE WRONG PLACES

PERU |

In Mission 3 of of ALL THE WRONG PLACES from VICE + MINI our Co-Pilot and host Krishna travel to Peru on a mission to find the infamous, centuries old scissor dancers: local men who stab rods into their tongues, hammer nails into their noses and dart cacti into their flesh.

What can you expect?… Two dance troupes battling it out in energetic and dangerous challenges that can last for up to 40hrs, in high-altitude, in order to bring fertility to the land.

Their steps are intricate and athletic and their costumes are Matador meets Las Vegas showgirl-turned textile artist. But don’t let their gaudy garb fool you, these dancers are hardened mountain men who twirl and flip about while self-piercing body parts.
