~mignolo dance~ is a 501(c)3 nonprofit contemporary dance company based out of New York and New Jersey founded by sisters, Charly and Eriel Santagado, 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. Their “translations” display a literal and nuanced interpretation of work that was originally done in a different medium to show the form and message of the initial work in a new light.

Her eclectic body of work ranges from interdisciplinary performance to life-sized installations to cut-and-tape zines to concert dance. Her work is frequently constructed around the idea clusters of interiority/intimacy/reflection, strangeness/humor/freedom, and the lived experience of moving through the world in a feminine body.
