About


Jesús Nieto, under the name Onírica Mecánica, creates poetic-mechanical-imaginary worlds for all those that love the extraordinary. His research challenges the feeling of what is “real,” the tyranny of what is visible, the devaluation of the spoken word, and every paradigm of “truth” that our modern society imposes.

Onírica Mecánica has shown their productions at the major festivals and events in Spain, France, Italy, and Morocco.

Nico García, Daniel Alcaraz, Sandra Robles, Ferroluar, Mauricio Corretjé, Sergio García and Paloma Parra collaborate or have collaborated on his projects.
