Displacing from binary gender and sexual identities the performance works in the creation of an imaginary of both gender and sexual "in-betweenness" and its embodiment: a human body approaching an object-like gender. Embracing objecthood as a mandala for a blurry genderness, a figure enters a simultaneous and paradoxical process of self-objectification and somatic disappearance (cancellation of its subjectivity). Dinis Machado searches for a parallel gender imaginary foreign to the mainstream sedimented pop aesthetics of queer. An exercise of displacement where: glittery costumes give place to processes of hacking the body with geometrical objects of concrete materials; stylized choreographies give place to uncanny movement patterns; pop songs give place to multifarious and blurry identity narratives sang as a dodecaphonic opera, that produce more of an incomplete fiction than a narrative legitimation of the self. This figure invests in uncanny conditionings and deformations of its body, finding in materiality, geometry, and plasticity a process of questioning the body in its self anthropomorphic representation and like that reclaiming a body of a queer materiality: that refuses to perform linear heterosexuality, maleness and anthropomorphism, and refuses paradoxically also to abandon it. DINIS MACHADO works as a choreographer since 2008. Born in Porto (PT) is based in Stockholm (SE) since 2012 where he collaborates with Weld. Holds the MA Choreography by DOCH (Stockholm) directed by Jefta Van Dinther and Frederic Gies and the Visual Arts Independent Studies Program at Maumaus (Lisbon). He studied also theatre and dance at ACE and Balleteatro in Porto and ESTC in Lisbon. In 2013 got the Cullberg Ballet/Life Long Burning swedish co-production for the project Black Cats Can See in the Dark But Are Not Seen one of the selected works at [8:tension] series at ImpulsTanz 2014. BARCO TWIN PRODUCTIONS BARCO TWIN PRODUCTIONS consists of the parallel development of the solo works CONSUBSTANCIATION by Dinis Machado and MIRAGE by Caroline Byström. Caroline and Dinis met during the MA at DOCH where they initiated informally the artistic companionship processes they want to develop here. These two productions have a program of mutual residencies being both choreographers in the same residency centres at the same time working on both works and therefore promoting a mutual dialogue, accompaniment and sharing of practices as well as a bidirectional mentorship. Barco Twin Productions constitutes as a travelling community where the choreographers become continuous critical interlocutors of each other, answering to the contemporary profile of travelling international artists, and the consequent difficulty to engage daily in the local scene of where they are based. The continuity of the accompaniment here proposed allows a deeper insight and dialogue between this choreographers while they travel through the usual ephemeral context of short-term residencies. Therefore BARCO Twin Productions proposes an alternative Artist collaboration where the artists work side by side instead of working for the production of one only work. Instead of working for the construction of an aesthetic agreement and consequent production of a single work, the two choreographers will use each other here in a dialectic way to think and define each other in relation to the other. To get to know there meeting points but also to map and learn about their different methodologies, perspectives, pathways and possibilities.
