About the Company

Founded in Zurich in 1999 by the Argentinean choreographer Teresa Rotemberg.  Since then, it produces regularly dance theatre plays with mostly international ensembles. Tensions emerge between grotesque humor, realistic tragedy, and the absurdities of life.  Despite her ingenious artistic direction and her hilarious productions , which also combine verbal language with dance movements or insert grotesque songs in the plot,  MAFALDA never loses their interest: investigating reality, unleashing emotions and confronting the audience with the issues and questions dealt on the stage, in the end, to make them  reflect upon themselves.  In 2002, Teresa Rotemberg received the prize of the city of Zurich in recognition of her merits in the field of dance.

About the Piece

In this production of dance-theatre for children, starting from age 5, we encounter beings with diverse qualities. They discover how to complement each other and live experiences together. Thus, exceeding limits that previously inhibited them.

In spite of their differences, together they have a force that unites them. The dancers express with the language of their movements that even in situations that seem to have no exit, is worth to continue seeking new perspectives.  The fantastical characters of this work, inspired in human behavior, present on stage, with their humor, very different temperaments.
