Mirette has been a professional contemporary dancer for more than 12 years. She is the founder and artistic director of No Point Perspective Dance Theater.
Mirette's performances are mainly the result of improvisations on personal and intimate issues, relationships and the tensions between what one wants to occur and what is actually there. This process results in productions with a vivid, light hearted and a humorous language. There is a main structure to Mirette's work that is non-narrative, yet emotionally and kinetically powerful. In her work, the dance, music, and the verbal text are an indivisible unit. Over the past 12 years, the company has premiered over 14 new performances in collaboration with artists from other disciplines including composers, filmmakers and musicians.

Brazilian born Swiss choreographer Guilherme Botelho started his dance career in Sao Paulo. He was later hired by the ballet of the Grand Théâtre in Geneva. He created Alias in 1994.
A keen observer of the paradoxes in our daily lives, the tensions that dwell in social relations and the questions that currently face the world, Botelho queries reality through his creations in an often highly provocative way.
There is a strong desire in him to question the meaning of things through his choreographies, dominated by movement and unbalance and demanding a complete commitment from the dancers.
