NUYE (2021) is the third full-length work of the award-winning Barcelona based contemporary circus company ‘eia’. Created over a period of extended research and development between February 2020 and July 2021 the work received funding from: Ministry of Culture, Education and Sport of Spanish Government (INAEM); Catalan Arts, Catalan Institute for Cultural Industries (ICEC); Ramon Llull Institute and co-production with Espace Catastrophe, Brussels; La Central del Circ, Barcelona; Teatre L’Artesà, El Prat de Llobregat; Teatre Principal de Terrassa; Teatre Cirvianum; Teatro Cervantes, Arnedo; El Graner Centre de Creació, Barcelona; and L’Estruch, Fàbrica de Creació de les Arts en Viu, Sabadell. As choreographer of this award-winning work, Man developed new ways for sustaining creative processes online during the Covid_19 confinements. NUYE unpacks the complex physical and psychological aspects of partner work in circus performance-making, where refined skills, commitment and deeply embedded trust are essential to experimental compositional processes. As leading practice research choreographer, Man explored how moving with and from a notion of abject body parts when in physical dialogue with other, can become a way to transgress normative modes of communication. Combining refined circus skills of hand-to-hand and icarian acrobatics with dance, scenography, lighting, original music composition, an interdisciplinary approach was key to the development of the choreographic language for this work.
