Surprised Body Project in Costa Rica
La Machine Festival is organised and produced by Los INnato and De Paso Grupo Escénico and functions as a platform of diffusion and promotion for dance and performing arts for national and international artists in Costa Rica.
The Festival focuses on using alternative spaces, encouraging the re‐activation and re‐significance of the public spaces and have contributed in generating new meanings for the collective and representative spaces of the city of San José. They brought a wide audience to watch dance performances both outdoor in public spaces, but also in‐door in traditional theatres.

The project is supported by Iberescena and Konstnärsnemden (Sweden).
