Catarina Miranda – Mountain Mouth


Posted October 17th, 2013

Catarina Miranda develops, researches and creates choreography and video. Her work explores cultural anthropology and archaic remnants of choreography and theater, and gives an outline for the study of concepts related to the organization of the body in time and space ( place ), in different societies and contexts. As well as the possibility of assigning meaning to pathways, gestures and objects translated into scene.

In all her work, she has been addressing more and more, processes of concealment and revelation, making use of different dynamic of light and shadow.

She is a member of the collective Flocks & Shoals (Berlin), Piso (Pt), Gentileza (Pt) and former member of the Cultural Space AltesFinanzamt, where, among others, she organized and presented cycles of performance: “The Space Between” and “Why is there a shadow in the Kitchen” (Berlin 2010 to 2013).

About Mountain Mouth

Demarcation of contained territories, through sequences of actions of transportation, exchange and omission of symbolic objects.

These perspective devices maintain the dialogue between spaces and characters, which, in turn, are subject to processes of unfolding and metamorphosis, revealing multiple possibilities of embodiment.

Regarding the permanent dialogue between what is revealed and what is obliterate, the exterior natural reality appears to prevail solemn and constant, although being a simulacrum of it self.
