JUAN MIRANDA (AR / SP - 1985) Theatre maker and researcher.
After he accomplished theatre studies in Buenos Aires, he obtains his Bachelor's degree in Theatre Directing and Dramaturgy at the Institut del Teatre in Barcelona. He is currently participating in the Master DAS Theatre with the support of a scholarship from the Bank Foundation 'La Caixa'.
His research is triggered by the that lies behind images and how the cinematic universe can perform from the scene. What makes an image present? How can we define their materiality and immateriality from theatre? His artistic work generally looks for excessive and passionate performativity, leading to gestures of exhaustion.
He has directed by Ivor Martinic (La Manufacture des Abbesses, Paris 2020.
