Orquestina de Pigmeos is a group formed by musician Nilo Gallego and audiovisual creator Chus Domínguez, alongside various members who collaborate on each new presentation. This time round they will be at Naves Matadero to act as mediums in a collective creation that reflects on displacement and exile, an experience that transforms creators, the people they come into contact with and the place where they act, a dialogue between sound, bodies and actions.

In the book I Had Nowhere to Go, avant-garde Lithuanian filmmaker Jonas Mekas tells the story of his exile across war-torn Europe to New York, where he must start his life over again.
