Moonwalk Lesson (Rigo Style), 2006
Slide projection, b&w, 5:00 min.

Contrary to what is commonly assumed, the Moonwalk (or Slide Step) was not invented by Michel Jackson in the early 1980’s. There are at least a couple of known inceptions before the time. One of them is attributed to popular Mexican singer Rigo Tovar (1946-2005) who incorporated it to his stage dancing in the early 1970’s. During that time Rigo did the step tuned to his cumbia music in front of huge masses of people.
Moonwalk Lesson (Rigo Style) is a 37 slide show which documents a group of art students teaching themselves the dancing step.
