LAS SISTARS

FEMALE ACROBATIC CIRCUS COMPANY

Las Sistars is an italocatalan company born from a casual friendship. Curiosity and a great stage chemistry brought us to work together after taking a two-year formation at Escola Rogelio Rivel together. Hand to hand discipline allowed us to enjoy the circus and play with our bodies, always trying to find different ways of communication.
Currently we are at the end of our first piece, where the circus coats itself in the absurdity and spitting gum becomes a risk sport. So far, we have worked around Catalonia and Italy with our
small format show and now we want to introduce our first long creation “Dai, ma aspetta”.

When we wait, does time become void? What happens when we are waiting?
