Synopsis

www.we want waffles is a research project and a performance trilogy working within the perception mechanisms and the issues affecting us in the digital era. To do this, we seek intersections between daily life and artistic creation, using digital tools to rethink ideas of body, choreographic composition and virtual communication.
www.we want waffles #1 plays with different formats, inhabiting a hybrid field between installation and performance. It explores the production of images and sounds from digital platforms, creating a contemplative journey about how we deal with the information age and a new era of productivity. This object offers an encounter with the visitor-spectator, finding pleasure in the limits of boredom while surfing into growing alienation.

João Estevens

João Estevens is a performer and researcher in social sciences. He studied at Forum Dança and is currently finishing his PhD at Nova University in Lisbon. In his artistic practice, he seeks to develop hybrid formats through long-term experimentation processes, to expand the use of improvisation as method for creation and to pose questions about human interaction with time, space and power, creating playful performances. He is part of the Rabbit Hole collective, in which he recently co-created the show ‘CÁPSULA’ (2015), the performance ‘Crime and Punishment’ (2017) and the performance-installation ‘Terrário’ (2016). He is the creator of a performance series called www.we want waffles (2018 -).
