Nina Santes

République Zombie

Like a Sumerian mask, the zombie is petrified, neither dead nor alive, dispossessed. An alienated, dissociated body, whose disease is a dance…

After causing a sensation with Hymen Hymne in 2018, Nina Santes returns to Antigel to address the zombie issue, in the sense of the numbness of our time, of bodies, and the whole world, and perform warning strategies. Her choreographic and musical language is based on the zombie body, both grotesque and terrifying. Moulded by colonial violence, it is both an alienated victim and a cannibal, master and slave. A stray body, without borders or geographies, slow and aimless, like a threat that gradually gains ground and that randomly goes into convulsions, curling up inexplicably.
