Dancer in suite with guitar lying on his back


A UNIVERSAL IDENTITY is a trip into the shared worlds of performer Manuel Kisters and choreographer Carla Jordão. From the fragments of growing and collapsing, of overcoming and failing, an I is formed. Each time new, each time old. The exhaustion of what is bearable, of one’s own possibilities and limits becomes the tray that carries one’s own personality – and thus the human being carries himself. Grows and fails. Fails and grows.
