After 15 years as an independent choreographer, Lina Cruz founded the company, Fila 13 Productions on August 13, 2003. Its mission statement is to support the artistic vision of the choreographer and the creation and production of dance and/or music performances. The company encourages the artistic exchange between artists of various disciplines, thus promoting research and artistic renewal in the creation of modern works of dance.
Always evolving on the margins of mainstream dance, the work of Fila 13 Productions aims at maintaining a strong link between freely associating images and hyper stylized bodywork. Through imaginative choreographies and a detailed body language, its productions convey a surreal landscape in which intriguing codes of expression and movement quality design on stage an appealing fusion of styles. The dance is eloquent, characterized by an intricate articulation of the body, traveling sharply and fluidly through the body parts.
