meet MIMOSA is a performance collective that deals with the state we experience, when our perception of the self or of the world is shaken. It searches a constructive handling of the consequent unsettlement. The project adds to critical academic discourses with movement, poetry and human presence. It takes heed of emerging emotions, physical reactions and states, researches them and creates through performance a space in which they can be felt and shared.
