Amer Kabanni (cia 104º)
The companyia 104º is an intimate place for experimentation and creation, where the goal is to find yourself.
The company is composed mainly for Amer Kabbani Fernandez, circus base, and also fully attracted by stage direction and all kind of live arts.
To research, rethink, redo; to think about all that goes beyond the objects and bodies are concepts that guide to create this space between ignorance and knowledge.
Amer Kabbani is surrounded by Ivan Tomasevich, a puppet, light design, music and live arts lover.
Between them, the conversations and research becomes a game.
To share all that, Alina Ventura helps them with the diffusion of the first show of the company 104º.
She is the founder of Maleta dels Espectacles, making possible for circus arts, and others, to travel around the world, for many years alreay.
The three of them have been already together with a previous project called ENVÀ, from Amer i Àfrica Circ cia. Which has toured through all Europe.
Amer worked with his flyer Àfrica Llorens during 9 years, with who he has growed in many levels and made possible to face this new chapter alone.
Amidst the rubble of a world in flames, RUNA emerges on stage as a testimony of a necessary process of personal and collective reconstruction.
The circus artist Amer Kabbani, of Catalan and Syrian origin, together with the director Rolando San Martín, explores the genre of autofiction to explore the glass bubble that protects his context as a racialized European from the harsh reality of war.
We see what’s beyond our comfort zone, beyond the mass media screens, but images don’t pierce our bodies in the same way that bullets do.
The circus discipline in this show, with the acrobatic technique of the base, implies supporting life, making use of the body and metaphors in places where words coexist but are not enough.
