Third Prize at XXIV Madrid Choreography Contest 2010

MINIATURA is a world of tiny things, portraits, manipulations and mechanisms. Miniatures are small-scale portraits and figurines. Both are easily manipulated and that makes them very fragile and extremely versatile at the same time. MINIATURA is a manipulation gear of the elements on stage: the body, the movement, video, the music and the performance space. We become objects and manipulating bodies, portraits and artificers, imaginary landscapes where real dimensions change through perspectives. We put ourselves in the shoes of music box little dolls and of sober-eyed women from ancient portraits. We dance detail and honour all that is small, which can become as big as the eyes.

“Two women who stretch, create and transform themselves, blend into each other and mutate. Without any doubt, an authentic delight for the senses."
Patricia SalvatierraUnderdogs, 2010.
