As a transgender man I do not want to assimilate the toxicity of hegemonic masculinity. I am interested in expressing the notion of masculinity from an intense, yet sensitive perspective. 
- Daniel Mariblanca 
 
With his award-winning contemporary dance company, 71BODIES, Daniel Mariblanca has made it his trademark to break through imposing societal gender roles. Art and activism is combined in the company’s use of art as a transformative tool to engage in progress and development in society. 
For ‘Made In Self’, Mariblanca has collaborated with four performers within contemporary dance and “extreme performance”. ‘Made In Self’ is a curated concept consisting of three independent solos and one duo, showcased through six performances over three days at MUNCH
Common to the four works is a deep and intense desire to break boundaries, liberate the body from stereotypes, and unfold new forms of masculinity. By intertwining sound, movement, images, and video, honest and intimate portraits are created, and will not leave the audience unaffected. 
The Berlin-based music producer and songwriter Florian Doerrhoefer performs live music for all the performances. He is signed as songwriter with Sony Publishing Germany and has previously collaborated with Daniel Mariblanca/71BODIES on the productions In First Person and NORMAL. 
'Made In Self' is a result of Daniel Mariblanca's role as a guest curator for CODA 2024 and is a co-production between 71BODIES, MUNCH, and CODA Oslo International Dance Festival.

ABOUT THE WORKS

Oliver Sale - Solo 
Expectations of hegemonic masculinity have shaped Oliver Sale's entire life. In this solo, the audience is invited into the dancer's personal journey through their own body, where they free themselves from the need to fulfill stereotypes and expectations. 
Choreography: Daniel Mariblanca, in collaboration with Oliver Sale 
Performer: Oliver Sale 
Live music: Florian Doerrhoefer 
Light design: 71BODIES in collaboration with Andreas Lassen

Jean-Baptiste Baele & Daniel Mariblanca - Duo 
A duet about the bodies as our homes - about experience, transformation and self affirmation. 
Choreography and performing: Daniel Mariblanca og Jean-Baptiste Baele 
Live music: Florian Doerrhoefer 
Light design: 71BODIES in collaboration with Andreas Lassen

Barry de Bruin - Solo 
An electric and energetic journey that yearns to delve deep, break bodily boundaries, and let imagination take over. The body and voice form a harmonious duo in this unique solo work. 
Choreography: Daniel Mariblanca in collaboration with Barry de Bruin 
Musician and performer: Barry de Bruin 
Light design: 71BODIES in collaboration with Andreas Lassen

Maria Perkances - Solo, NB! extreme performance 
Miss Perkances uses his body in a transgressive way. A coded body since his spinal cord fracture, and crippled with his left heel distortion, Maria attempts not only to exorcize his suffering, but to go beyond the limits of his resistance. Only through the catharsis of performance and ritual is it possible to escape the obstacles imposed by society and the tyranny of gender. 
Producer and performer: Maria Perkances
