Biography

 ~mignolo dance~ is a 501-c3 nonprofit contemporary dance company founded by sisters, Charly and Eriel Santagado, in 2017.

The company has had work produced at many festivals including KoDaFe, Dumbo Dance Festival, Triskelion’s SummerFest, Waxworks, Peridance’s APEX, and Koresh’s Come Together Dance Festival. Most recently, their work was produced in HERE Arts Center’s Co-op Sublet Series and was presented at Inclined Dance Project’s inQuad Split Bill Series at Dixon Place. Their first evening-length work will be produced by Jersey City Theater Center this year.

Leaning into the Unknown Performance Summary

Sisters Charly and Eriel Santagado present their new work-in-progress “De-Eschatology,” a physical manifestation of the claustrophobic conditions created by the COVID-19 crisis and the yearning to break free from them. The piece seeks to draw attention to a heightened sense of touch, which directly results from the lack of physical contact many in quarantine face.
