Enanitos Toreros: Dwarf Bullfighters, in Dumbo

At Powerhouse Arena in Dumbo: Photographer Livia Corona has documented the Enanitos Toreros, troupes of dwarfs performing as bullfighters in Mexico. In the photo above, a huge photo by Corona dominates a wall at Powerhouse.

The Enanitos Toreros, often ridiculed, are a Mexican cultural tradition dating back to Spain.
