Nina Santes, 2015

“In SELF MADE MAN, I’m mingling movements to discourse and singing. Meanwhile the scenography occuring and evolving alongside the dramaturgy. Playing then with those multiple practices I’m considering the stage as a possible place of craftmanship as well as a see through factory.
This very space, nude and empty is dedicated to making. It’s ordered by a self-taught spirit himself being ruled by intuition.
This worksite then becomes a field for a body and a space.

SELF MADE MAN is trying to achieve a precarious equilibrium between the time of the concrete practice and the time for contemplation.
Build (the self), (re)build, (de)constructing : the body, sounds, figures, landscapes. Build a language, as well as our relation to the world.

SELF MADE MAN is becoming then a polyphonic score for a lonely self-taught one. Through the process of recreating the self, a grammar of survival is emerging. Acheiving a slow and profund utopia”.
