mini@tures is a melting-pot of
new dance, electronic music, web design
A pluralistic choreographic concept...
A round trip from the real to the virtual, from multimedia to the stage, where dance plays with new technologies.
A fusion of new dance, electronic music, video-art, and web-design.
"mini@tures" is a choreographic concept designed in the form of VERY short films ... shorter than short, where movement opens itself to new paths (internet & multimedia) to return punctually onto the stage, nourished by these new offerings.
The project displays 3 phases:
- Phase 1 real ... virtual:
multimedia and web works
- Phase 2 virtual ... real:
- Phase 3 real ... virtual:
multimedia and web works (suite et fin)
On the net, CD-ROM, video, or on stage, mini@tures is short. Always. Sometimes strange, sometimes funny, sometimes tender...
A new dimension which plays with time/space.
A nomadic dance, in the conquest of new territories to be claimed. A free concept, for a free audience...
78.000 connected spectators, coming from 70 countries, have already discoverd the web clips on-line

"...Mulleras Dance Company are among the almost important explorers in the field of digital art.”
"... U.S. premiere! With an eye toward the absurdities of everyday life, Magali and Didier Mulleras of France have created a series of small dance performances that honor life's mythic and fantastic moments with humor and intelligence. First developed as 100 short film clips for the Web (www.mulleras.com) and then re-imagined for the stage, mini@tures mixes dance, visual arts, video, and theater, pushing the boundaries between the virtual and the real. "
" ...An unclassificable performance, funny, tender, where the real and virtual are echoes of one another"
"... From the screen to the stage, and vice-versa, the Compagnie Mulleras shifts between the real and the virtual, nourishing an innovative artistic reflection which is resolutely turned towards the future."
" ... The Compagnie Mulleras shatters all certainties and expectations, leaving one admiring their technological and artistic prowess that are executed with such mastery. Breathtaking ! "
" ...small and delightfull dance movements, full of humor and derision. The result is astonishing and very accessible. An exercise executed with remarkable precision"
"... never seen before ... a visual magic that defies words"
"... Captivating and extremely lively, "mini@tures" is a real delight for the senses. A futuristic vision for contemporary dance. A lesson in creativity"
“...As performances unfold, the Mulleras Company explores a new pattern of creation, but also attracts a new public that may not have been alive to contemporary dance until then.”
"...their website is a testimony of their eccentric and quirky approach to dance. The minimalist choreography is set to spacey-electronica music composed by Didier Mulleras, perfectly complementing the oddball nature of these clips..."
“...What the French jokers do reminds is one of an exercise in Gulliver’s court theater. The tiny figures of dancers work choreographic miracles. The result is an exotic cartoon world.”
