mignolo dance, Conjoined Conjoined is duet which explores the chronic exploitation of conjoined twins, especially in relation to the world of entertainment. The idea of acting / dancing as "normally" as possible (as though not attached) is often employed in order to de-sentimentalize the concept and allow the physicality to speak for itself. Dancers/choreographers Charly & Eriel Santagado founded their contemporary dance company, ~mignolo dance~, in 2017. They have been dancing and creating together for more than ten years and use this experience to continue to collaborate with each other and other dancers and artists to create new work that explores elements of various artistic mediums through movement. 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, and had their first full length show, “Translations”, produced by HERE Arts Center in July 2019.
