A NATION IS BORN IN ME

ENGLISH

A NATION IS BORN IN ME seizes the encounter between performer and audience transforming it into a slippery battlefield. And by piercing that encounter, an irreplaceable form is constructed. Something that defuses all resistance. Something impossible to fight against. Something worth surrendering to.

In the light of a resurfacing and progressive strengthening of Nationalist and Identitarian movements in the 21st Century, A Nation Is Born In Me extracts dynamics that operate in such movements and blends them together with identity politics, media culture, sport culture, spirituality, brutality and hyper-presence, provoking an uncanny closeness between these aesthetics. Through the different presentations of the body, text, music, singing and objects, A NATION IS BORN IN ME builds an intense and delusional landscape in which these apparently disconnected dynamics strengthen each other in a very direct, albeit uncertain rapport to the audience.

CASTELLANO

A NATION IS BORN IN ME ocupa el encuentro mismo entre intérprete y público transformando nuestra presencia en un resbaladizo campo de batalla. Y a base de perforar ese encuentro, construye una forma irreemplazable. Algo que desactiva cualquier resistencia. Algo contra lo que no se puede luchar. Algo por lo que vale la pena rendirse.

A la luz del resurgimiento y fortalecimiento progresivo de los movimientos nacionalistas e identitarios en el siglo XXI, A NATION IS BORN IN ME extrae dinámicas que operan en dichos movimientos y los combina con aspectos asociados a las políticas de identidad, la cultura mediática, la cultura deportiva, la cultura del esfuerzo, la espiritualidad, la brutalidad y la híper-presencia, provocando una extraña cercanía entre estas estéticas. A través de las diferentes presentaciones del cuerpo, el texto , la música, el canto y los objetos, A NATION IS BORN IN ME construye un intenso y delirante paisaje en el que estas dinámicas aparentemente desconectadas se fortalecen mutuamente en una relación directa aunque de proposición incierta.
