Artist: Compañía de Circo eia
Living brings its layers, of growing, learning and sharing. Travel in all its forms... action, interaction, existence. Welcome to our homes, their smells, sounds of memory, and the roots from which we come, the lives that have built and will build us to be what we are and will be. A return to our origins, where we open the doors to our secrets and our worlds, delving through the layers which clothe our stories. Welcome to our circus!
Capas literally means “layer”, “strata” ... Through passing quarrels and games of hide-and-seek, Capas lets us in to a circus version of communal life : convivial, almost family, made from the festive warmth of meetings. Circus arts mix with music and danse im this show full of poetry and humour. To rock rhythms and Italian songs a giant and very central cupboard unfolds and reveals its multiple layers. The music and the movement set the pace, alternating between energy, tenderness and self-mockery. The artists explore the varieties of rhythm and the expressive potential of a technical gesture. Hand to hand, balance, somersaults and dancing human pyramids; the acrobatics play through all their forms as they explore the “layers” - capas- of personality, of society, at the same time as offering the spectator different layers of interpretation. A football, a skipping rope, white sheets and the skeleton of a cupboard, all these elements take their turn to become players in the game and the acrobatics.
