Program Notes

I.- Elves, often described as a malicious dwarf as the leprechaun known for his antics and is believed to know where the treasure is hidden. Sometimes we think of elves as helpers, magicians' assistants, and even the legendary Santa Claus.

II.- The Fairies are mythical creatures of folklore and romance, which usually describes them as tiny humans with wings and magical powers. The fairies are protector beings, such as guardian angels. This movement was inspired by the movie where a mechanic has to be an artificial intelligence, being able to achieve this great emotional meaning, comparing this phenomenon by magic fairies are able to provide human, illusion.

III.- The Gnomes are tiny creatures, measuring between 10 and 50 cm, maybe other a little bigger, but perhaps more live in wooded areas or unknown. They are attributed magical powers because they are not tied to the rational way of understanding the world as humans, retain traditions of millions of years, and aims at spiritual ascent.
