The dancer is a selfish and arrogant person. Egocentric, an addict, a sick person he
would kill to be on stage. Everything that is not ’him’ is his enemy. Paradoxically, we -the
choreographer and the public- must accept that he is that person, otherwise, the performance
would not exist. But him, does he agree with this?

He would reveal him to the public as a complex individuality and an interpreter who seeks to give meaning and clarity to his art... Dancing
The dancer seeks recognition through the public. He lives for it; it’s his art, his bread. For him, he is the only one who has the power to be idolized, to inspire vocations and bring dance in front of big audiences.... Maybe he is right?
