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.
