Research and training in technology for live visual arts

MIRA Lab is a space dedicated to discovering new live music and visual arts shows based on a creative brief and the most disruptive technology. This international event promotes the exchange of knowledge between all the agents involved in the creative industry.

This laboratory forms part of the MIRA Music & Visual Arts Festival, now celebrating its third year and bringing together different venues in the city with a single aim: to make Barcelona the capital of the visual arts.

MIRA Lab spans three days, bringing together in its first outing artists and collectives specializing in research and training in the field of technology for live visual arts. It offers new workshops, three lectures, three debates, two audiovisual shows, screenings, presentations and competitions.

Audiovisual shows open to the public

Electronic Performers present Trinity, an audiovisual interactive dance project produced by Oscar Sol, Iris Heitzinger and Ramon Prada that establishes a functional and aesthetic dialogue between the three elements that make up the work: movement, sound and visuals.

NOBU_LAB (Paola Roberti, Manfredi Borseti and Andrea Giomi) present IN-STRUCTURE/MOOGGER FOGGER, a show where analog and digital electronic instruments combine with field recordings to make music that is highly physical and full of textures, creating a dark, introspective sound experience.
