It has a very precise and distinct point of origin.

It's many at once.

It spreads like roots, grows in all directions.

It likes finding a new home and cultivates comfort.

 

It's like a mangrove.

It has a tendency to indulge in drama.

It's very susceptible to change.

Established in 2019, it launched as first project the Spanish translation and staging of Annie Ryan's theatrical adaptation of A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing by Eimear McBride - Una niña es una cosa a medio formar.

"The directing of Juan Miranda and Manuela de Laborde's sculptural piece -that together with the light design of Elisabet Castells i Negre conform the only possible stage design to accompany and sustain this piece without distraction- have brought Pía Laborde-Noguez to invade with an air of little girl without malice the theatre at the Tamayo Museum, and make of A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing an actoral peripeteia harrowing the audience through fragmented events, that both predict and recall..."

"Pía Laborde-Noguez constructs her character with absolute knowledge of cause; she has studied, assimilated and exhibits it with the full arsenal of resources that her vocation and academic formation provide... An organic artist, with a strength and malleability that allows her to transition from one mood to another with coherent ease in spite of the self-destructive tendencies of her character. 
Her tour-de-force in A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing anticipates all she can create on stage. Her presence is a breath of fresh air challenging Mexican dramaturgy."

- by Enrique R. Mirabal for Interescena.
