Catarina Miranda

Event Slider

Fascinated by altered states of consciousness, Catarina Miranda sets her work in fictional places traversed by phenomena and memories, where the past and the future move between dreams and reality. Created in 2015, Reiposto Reimorto forms part of the Rei trilogy, which evokes archetypes of power and violence. In the piece, anonymous beings throw and move about plastic sculptures that evoke waste as much as they do lifeless bodies, creating an ambiguous space from which a phantasmagorical monument emerges.

Through the sound of an Iberian organ, a mysterious and sublime space is created, with sound composition from Jonathan Uliel Saldanha, Ana Renata Polónia and lighting design from Santiago Tricot, close collaborators of Catarina Miranda.

Reiposto Reimorto received the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation grant for artistic creation in 2015. .
Premiere: 23 October 2015, TMP Campo Alegre, Porto.

Catarina Miranda (Coimbra, 1982) has developed fictional discourses, whose languages intercept dance, voice, set design and lighting, approaching the body as a vehicle of transformation of consciousness. She completed her EXERCE Master’s degree at the ICI-CCN (Montpellier/Fr) and her undergraduate degree in Visual Arts at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto; she studied NOH Theatre at the Kyoto Art Center, Japan. Cabraqimera and Poromechanics are her most recent creations.


Throughout two long weekends, dance returns to the auditoriums of the Foundation with the performance of two dozen works created over recent years with support from the Gulbenkian and with some making their very first appearance in Portugal. Program selection under the curatorship of João dos Santos Martins.


The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation reserves the right to collect and keep records of images, sounds and voice for the diffusion and collective preservation of the memory of its cultural and artistic activity. For further information, please contact us at [email protected].
