Autointitulado was made in order to forget a number of improvisations we danced in a studio designed for this purpose. These recorded dances, deleted since then, carried residues that we identified as influences, as many striking images. Each known or anonymous model, whose weight stiffens our limbs, has inspired the composition of dances according to our memory. The time gaps between the models we reproduced suppose a kind of narration. We did not exaggerate its effects. It is not about another staged dance history but a studio practice brought out of the aquarium to be asphyxiated once for all. If only.

João dos Santos Martins is one of the most well known Young choreographers from Portgal. He collaborated as performer with Eszter Salamon, Xavier Le Roy and Rui Horta, among others. Cyriaque Villemaux danced for Noé Soulier and Xavier Le Roy in festivals as Festival d’Autumne à Paris
