AMER & ÀFRICA CIRC CIA.

ENVÀ

Gender:
Length: 40-50min
Language: ,

Synopsis

Between 250kg of straw and 125kg of human mass, two people play around through the movement, balance, humour and composition of space, exploring the peculiarities of human relationships.
ENVÀ (in Catalan) is a thin wall that is constructed to separate spaces.
People often build mental walls that protect us from a serious emotional danger regarding others. We spend our lives looking for a way to free ourselves and all we need is to knock that wall down. The wall doesn’t let us fully feel and communicate without barriers. Symbolically, we reflect the stupidity of human nature and all those actions we do in vain in order to find each other.
This concept is brought to life hand to hand circus technique. Combining the integration of figures in the context, joining acrobatics with history, humour and intensity, emotion, innovation and beauty.

This high level circus performance makes a strong connection with it’s audience and the space where the performance takes place, making them part of the story. Every performance is different and a unique experience because of this. That is why Enva is a perfect fit for Miramiro where Miracles Matter.
