Mira was conceived from the possibility of being assisted in 360 degrees, bringing the viewer into the choreography in an immersive sensory experience. It is a new perception about the look at dance, which puts the audience as an integral part of the work. The name refers to the star Mira, a red giant of the brightest of the constellation Cetus, that changes the appearance of significant form in cycles of 304 to 353 days. It also refers to the verb "mirar," from the Latin "miro," which means to see, to look with astonishment or intensely or long in the distance, to admire.

"Apariciones/Apparitions" depicts ghost-like dancers inhabiting the historic Los Angeles landmark, The Huntington Library. Choreographed by dance artist Marina Magalhães and directed by visual artist Carolina Caycedo, the piece is centered on brown, black, and queer bodies haunting The Huntington’s iconic and traditional spaces -- such as the sweeping sculpture-lined North Vista lawn and the rare book reading room in the Library building -- in sensuous movements informed by the spiritual rituals of an Afro-Brazilian deity, Oxúm. The gaze of the dancers, or phantoms, holds the viewer accountable, something that is too often missing from history and art.

Music composed by O Guarani Maestro Carlos Gomes versão Família Lima (Overture)
Cinematography by Jurssa Santos e Diogo Angeli
Edited by Diogo Angeli
This artistic work flows in the sense of breaking paradigms from the classic romantic to the contemporary urban. The urban culture, the modern young man, mixing and interacting intimately with the work of Carlos Gomes, transcending the feeling and living every moment, exhaling music through the pores of the interpreters, making the popular-classic and popular-classic, bringing expressions which are almost always distanced by (pre) concepts.
The project, in addition to a performance for the Italian stage, also features 5 videodances, with singular looks on the life and work of Maestro Carlos Gomes and overlaps embedded in the bodies of the urban dancers of Cia Eclipse Cultura e Arte.

Music by Max Lehmann and Portishead
Edited by Lucas Alves, Michael Maia and Patricia Meireles
Artistic Director by Juliana Silveira
Project Coordinators by Juliana Silveira and Mariana Procópio
Half Ousted is anchored in the notion of conflict to create a dramaturgy in which the affective relations present themselves as the main scenic element. The sensations of absence, search, solitude, encounter, hesitation and separation constitute a set of affections that intermediate the junction and the distance between the bodies. The scenographic space, a disused power plant and its machinery – settles into the scene as an environment charged with a dramatic atmosphere that composes and accentuates the density of the scenic action.
