“La Mariposa” is a mix of dance and theatre telling the story of a little caterpillar who turned into a beautiful butterfly and then forgot how to fly. And why the butterfly discovered again her colorful wings and flew happily ever after.
The artist uses her own body and different elements to narrate the story, including a pair of giant wings. Music, sounds and above all, movement and color.
