Luz, micro y punto Luz, micro y punto are a spanish shadow theatre company founded in 2013. Its members are three women: Chantal Franco, Patricia Toral and Verónica R. Galán, artists and performers whose work concentrates on experimentation and creation of visual and musical stories within the frameworks of shadow theatre.

In the staging of the visual art and puppets, Patricia and Chantal use analogical technology as well as different formats which range from the most traditional or classical shadow theatre techniques to more  experimental and contemporary ones, always resulting in images which are both poetic and home-made.  The soul of these images is the music, written specifically for each play by Verónica.

 

Patricia Toral


Shadow pupeteer and puppeteer, with reminiscences of technical industrial engineering. I move to Malta in 2012, where I reinvent myself professionally, distancing myself more and more from works  made out of concrete and starting to build up those made based on bits of dreams.
By the end of that year, I present at La Valletta (Malta) my first shadow show, "Metamorpolis", alongside a team of seven people as director, co-writer,  maker and handler of puppets.

I return to Spain in 2013, year in which, in junction with Chantal Franco y Verónica R. Galán, we create the Luz, Micro y Punto company.  In this one, I finally bring to life my little universe of dreams, by  co-directing our plays and  making and handling puppets.
