»we are made« is the first ever dance film made by the cie. toula limnaios, in collaboration with giacomo corvaia.

after four years as a dancer in the ensemble, he is now behind the camera.
choreographic miniatures from pieces, filmed with dancers of the ensemble, are placed in alternative contexts outside the stage. these worlds are transformed and modified for the film. the camera emphasizes details and like a witness of time passin recounts the stretch of almost an entire year.
the micro-worlds are filmed in places that seem to have fallen out of time – monuments of history or places in constant transition – thus creating alternate contexts. the movements are thus read in new ways, putting them into new perspective in a interweaving of images.

»we are made« is a series of portraits connected to one another, that contradict, harmonize and enter into a dialog with each other …. the images chase one another. the figures explore landscapes that are both distinct and obscure at the same time, like in a daydream – apparitions from dreams, memories rooted in daily life, filled with beauty and poetry.

a cie. toula limnaios production with kind support by the senate for culture and Europe of berlin.
