Une partie de soi
"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.

This new solo proposes a vertical crossing whose point of departure 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.

Une partie de soi will be a circular solo show, indoor as well as outdoor, mixing Chinese pole and manipulation of stick poles, with a very intense choreographic proposition, a movement like aquatic, and all that will lead the audience  to perceive the man beyond the gesture.
