In the acts to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the opening of Fundació Miró Mallorca we have developed the "Constel·lacions" Workshop, which is included in the Miró DansaLab project: a set of movement workshops conducted with the Teatre Principal, directed by Baal dance and the educational team of the museum.
The “Constel·lacions” workshop has been a process of experimentation with the movement, linked to plastic language concepts and to the work of Joan Miró. It has been developed in a very special space: one of the exhibition halls of the museum with works by the Miró exhibition ever seen.
During the workshop, intensive improvisation and immediate composition have been worked, creating a choreography in which the body movement in space was forming a new, particular and ephemeral constellation.

"The night, the music and the stars began to play a more important role when it comes to suggesting paintings"
As a conclusion, the participants read Miró’s quotes, in which the artist, in first person, narrates different parts of the process of creating the 23 drawings that make up the “Constel·lacions.”
