Mirror, dear mirror, do tell me: Who is the world’s handsomest?
Mirror, dear mirror, do tell me: Who is the world’s preferred?
Show me, mirror dear, just what I want to hear!
And what I want to see!
Do dispel my griefs
So I shall never again
Be in tears!

MILLENNIAL MAGIC MIRROR explores the use and abuse of new technologies, AI, social networks and humanism. There is a place where we communicate with fellow humans and with robots at the same time. This is the world where the two world intertwine. Robots increasingly resemble people and humans increasingly act like robots. In what is to be the place for network connection and deeper interaction, solitude reigns in the ocean of information.

mimoOs is an artistic group that brings together graduates from the Department of Dance of the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava to create and perform in contemporary dance. mimoOs includes Barbora Janáková, Eva Priečková, Lukáš Bobalik, Andrej Štepita and Simona Tonková, members of Slovakia’s youngest generation of independent professional authors and performers in contemporary dance. They collaborate with acclaimed choreographers (Anton Lachký, Yuri Korec, Marta Poláková, Peter Šavel, Davide Sportelli), and enjoyed a number of international sabbaticals (Erasmus+: Belgium, Czech Republic; International Project Dijon,; SMASH Berlin; 1st and 2nd China-CEEC Summer Dance Camp). They actively perform (Metamorphoses of Dance / Premeny tanca, 2011; Skin, 2012; Cartoon Universe, Axiomatic Lure / Axiomatické lákadlo, 2014; Art of Emotional Comprehension / Pocitové rozUmenie, 2015; Night Illusion / Nočná ilúzia, 2016; d-BODY-m, 2017) and create choreographies (All the Way / Do dna, 2016; TOUCH / DOTYK, 2017).In 2018 they premières Another Song in Silence a Moving Mountains.

Contemporary dance husband-and-wife ensemble PRIEKOPNÍK VEVERIČKA brings together Lívia Mendez Marin Balážová (Levice, Slovakia) and Zebastián Méndez Marín (San José, Costa Rica). Their paths first crossed in Europe where they collaborated with Belgian ensemble Ultima Vez / Wim Vandekeybus. With the lauded performance What the Body Does Not Remember they toured the world for nearly three years. Their energies matched so much that they decided to work together and share their world with the world. In their performances they like to talk about themes that are either current, forgotten or foreseen. In November 2015 Lívia a Zebastián celebrated the foundation of their ensemble with the première of their first joint performance El Gato de Schrödinger in Gráfica Génesis (San José, Costa Rica). In March 2016 they premièred #whateveristrendingnow, to perform it further in festivals in Costa Rica. Their creative approach focuses on merging with context, breaking viewer stereotypes about performance (audience – stage, observer – aquarium). Their signature approach is discernible in their further post-apocalyptic performance Dust/Prach/Polvo that has been made possible because of the Teatro Atahualpa del Cioppo (Heredia, Costa Rica) in April 2016.
