Tempo.Raum.Again

Premiere January 2022

Contemporary circus play, 50 min.

Three curious people set out in search of their personal relationship to time. What does time mean to humanity and what all can be found along the way of such an adventure? Through their means of transportation, a time machine, the audience is taken into their alternative reality, into dimensions where the limits of physics and intellect may be transcended. Scenes from their personal experiences and observations are reformulated with circus and beats.... Played, as if by children we all once were. Because it is clear: time connects - in so many moments of the art of living.

Orest

Premiere March 2019

Contemporary Oprah, Wiener Staatsoper

"...The war has left its deep traces in all people..." (Marelli). The warriors of the play are the personalization of these traces. And establish the argument of both sides of this philosophical dispute. To wash honor with vengeance, to kill and be killed in the name of an ideal, personal or social; or to want to end violence in the name of justice and human freedom.

Be Happy

Premiere Setember  2018

" Be Happy" tells the odyssey of Mrs. & Mr. Wilde, a sweet and compicated couple in search of love and laughter in this world.... They understand very soon that the best starting point is in themselves! The two modern buffons open up their struggles and triumphs to audiences of all ages, bringing domestic situations on stage, playing with role cliches, subtly inviting everyone to cherry their problematic and funny everyday poetry.

Fogueiral

Premiere June  2013

Washington Trapeze contemporary Act

"This thing that burns in us wants to speak from within me". Shaking and hitting the space, the artist proposes a balance in chaos. A closer look at the importance of harmony in disorder. Just like the universe, is our personal journey in the cosmos - at first glance it looks peaceful and organized, at the second it could be messed up at any second. We are the result of inner and outer unexpected explosions. Mia brings some of her explosions to this beautiful and outrageous piece.

A inquietude de todas as coisas

Premiere July  2011

Washington Trapeze contemporary Act

"The restless of everything" is a showcase of the constant flow that governs the universe and the individual. The incomprehension of change. Everything moves and everything rests without the understanding of its necessity. From a breathtaking free headstand on a trapeze to the thousands of eye blinks we do every day.... We humans, go on and roll in existence. We enjoy, or don't, the mutation of time without ever really grasping the meaning of it. Everything around us and within us is foreign.... and yet we ask ourselves: are we who we really are?
