At a certain point in my career I understood that when it came down to it, my work was to give light and value to things which appear not to have either, and vice versa. This is the most important function of the artist, since he must be able to lift himself out of inertia, blindspots and conventions, to stand back and, with a bit of luck, enderezer something in his life and, to an extent, in society itself. In other words, being able to change our view is the only thing we should aspire to in order to face the dark corners of the psyche and the insondables mechanisms that groups of humans drag around with them.

It is with this aim in sight that the manipulator of objects works, looking and looking again at the material, passing it from one hand to another, investigating it on every scale to find new and unexpected uses that will reveal the profound nature that makes it what it is, and above all everything that it could be, since the object is always a projection of ourselves.

So much so that the main subject of this project is myself, the purported artist, a crude metaphor for the individual. Perhaps the act of making art is in fact by definition a sacrifice. Every song, every show, may involve throwing something of supposed value on the fire. The manipulator of objects works to visualise shadow and does in fact make it flesh. The manipulator of objects accompanies the artist into the abyss: the abyss of loss of identity, loss of image, loss of reason and loss of courage. Maybe he is the one who needs the opulent, blind and arrogant concept and way of life that we have as a society.

So the musical artist and his shadow on stage will perform a kind of naked ritual full of songs, sounds, dreams and symbols, spoken words, vomited texts, confessions, darkness, epiphanies, dances, catharsis and tiny gestures that contain the subtle fight to the death between necessary, deceitful meaning and nothingness.

Inspired by rural landscape and manual work, the piece De una en otra (From One Into Another) combines dance, visual and object theatre. Through the manipulation of thirty seven tiles, three performers draw visual and sound landscapes with a movement marked by physical labour and constant effort.
De una a otra tries to transform and transcend the fragility and weight of the tiles into an emblem of equilibrium and of human relations submitting to matter. It favours materials and sounds that are harsh, delicate but forceful, vulnerable to irreversible breakage.
The piece seeks shadows and corners of the city: patios, patches of wasteland, areas under reconstruction.

R.A.V.E. (Revolutionary Group for Voluntary Extermination)
“The absence of a future has already begun. The that has finished arrived, yet again, which suggests that perhaps it has never ceased beginning…” (from the book “Is There A World To Come” by Déborah Danowski and Eduardo Viveiros de Castro).

Starting from the idea of the finite, limit and end, an instantaneous device for composition is put into play in the form of a solo.
The future, the idea of the cycle, of returning to the known, coming back, implacable time, permanence versus change, the indefinite, the foreseeable, endurance and incessant transformation, are some of the starting points for the construction of this piece which, inevitably, in broaching hypotheses on the future must also deal with beginnings.
