Une partie de soi

«Une partie de soi» (a part of oneself) is a vertical traversal that relates the journey of a life, and shows the individual beyond the acrobat.

In a circle and in proximity, in a refined space reduced to the man, the pole and the circle, João Paulo Santos deploys a dense and powerful choreogra- phy, made of ritornellos and stretched time.

As if on a conveyor belt, without ever touching the ground, he tests his apparatus and shows the Chinese pole as it is rarely seen.

Sit down, let yourself go, the body tells you the story of the soul




"With my eyes close, I observe myself, as if I were out of my body. From up there, I feel the bubbling inside. 

Each time I compose, the path is never the same. It tests me, transforms me, giving me sometimes the appearance of a superman, sometimes of a man ravaged by fatigue.

Nevertheless, it is there that I feel alive: in this continual starting over, in this risk-taking, not only physical but also and above all artistic. To feel right and in tune, with what I undertake to say, with my guts, my hands and my sweat.

Each new creation is like a birth. A part of oneself detaches itself to become an intention, an idea, a movement, a performance. Sometimes clumsy or misunderstood, certainly fragile, but sincere."

João Paulo Santos


In this vibrant creative state that characterises his work, João Paulo Santos wishes to tell the story of a life dedicated to an art that has shaped the esh and the place in the world of the person who practised it. Telling the story from the inside, taking time for details, with a deep sincerity.

The departure point of this new solo is the center, the energy center. It is a journey from the inside to the outside, a crossing of the intimate that will assume its oxymorons and hollows and will underline the quality and singularity of a gesture that is recognizable, among others.
