“are made of this” is a performance based on the research of the space between us and others, on exploring love as precondition of any relation with others, and our autonomy within these relations.

We reveal the body as the site for different kinds of negotiations and battles, and the place where all events eventually leave traces. We want to understand the motivations of the body as a subject, which is not innocent in its communication with the world, on one hand, and an object, which suffers the consequences and is unable to influence decisions on the other. The performance deals with the subjective understanding of the reality and actions that we take to change it, and the impossibility of objectiveness. What happens when our subjective understandings communicate?

The choreographic materials, texts and sounds are created during the process of rehearsals and are woven into one another organically. Music is played live from the stage, as the only male performer is as well the composer.
