MINA is an experimental project that extends Carlota Lagido’s contemporary dance practice to other disciplines that are part of her artistic and life lexicon such as drawing, video, photography, music, cooking, ornithology and botany. The project is divided in different phases — research, experimentation, and practice — that materialise as artistic residencies, pedagogical activities, talks, exhibitions, lecture-performances, rehearsals, and performances.

MINA is a project with and about women, a performance-manifesto for the abolition of the patriarchy. Some of the women involved in the project are from another time. Others are of the present: Joana Castro, Xana Novais, Joana Levi, Aurora Pinho, Francisca Manuel, Shahd Wadi, Elizabete Francisca, Thamiris Carvalho, Mónica Calle, Filipa Valladares, and a botanist and an ornithologist. What do these women have in common with the ghosts of Artemisa Gentileschi, Simona Kossak, Frida Kahlo, Aurélia de Souza, Maria Bandeira, Anna Atkins, Hildergard de Binden, and Mina, among others? How does these women related to the current dystopia — in their political, social, relational, and emotional lives — and how does it affect their work and their lives?
