Pigmalião Escultura Que Mexe is a collective of artists who found in puppet theater the ideal vehicle to develop work on the boundary between the performing arts and the plastic arts. Created in 2007 and based in the city of Belo Horizonte, the group has always sought to develop shows with conceptual and philosophical depth.
His trajectory is closely linked to contemporary theater and the performing arts, where philosophy and politics permeate the dramaturgy and staging of his shows. The possibilities of manipulating the classical string puppet, as well as the relationship between the actors and the puppets and the constant research with other artistic disciplines are the fundamental elements of his work. Thus, Pigmalião Escultura que Mexe seeks the recognition of the puppet in contemporary artistic production.
Eduardo Felix, the artistic director of Pigmalião, focuses much of his research and his shows on the movement of string puppets, being internationally recognized as an artist and puppet maker.
