there is more than one way to manufacture (tism to watoma) is a project made by associate artists of the Universal Pleasure Factory in the format of a concert. The concept behind tism to watoma is to create a discourse about contemporary music written within the aesthetics of pop culture. By reshaping hit songs from the 20th and 21th centuries, the question arises: what is the real subject of the nostalgia that is enabled while listening to familiar tunes? Does this feeling alter if we change its subject?

About the artists
Universal Pleasure Factory is an association based in Romania, working on performing arts and cultural projects that facilitate the collaboration between artists on an international level. Our goal is to help them connect on a very personal, peer to peer level, because we believe that personal, direct experiences have the biggest impact on us, so on our work as well. Thus we always try to not to frame our projects, to keep it as close to the reality of everyday life as possible, keep it non-institutionalised. This means that the form and structure of our projects always change, depending on the needs of the given artist or commission.
