A fluent understanding of Portuguese is required for a full appreciation of this performance.
On top of a large table, a ballerina dances. Dances in silence. The audience, sitting around her, watches her closely. She dances for the audience to decipher, through her moving figure, how their steps and gestures are and where they come from. Is she thinking about the geography of a body that she sees, or about a vegetable soup almost ready for lunch? How do you bring together the aspects of what the dancer sees as she dances for a group of adults and children, with the micro movements, looks and poses of the audience as they watch?

Mi, in this case, is short for micro motion. That is the source that sustains the whole show. A family performance about the power of imagination inspired by the book of Sandro William Junqueira.
