23rd Circ d'Hivern - Nu

SYNOPSIS: 

SYNOSIS

Nu is a contemporary circus performance which, with simplicity and transparency, talks about human relationships and how they interact with objects. The interaction between these objects and bodies intended to create ludicrous spheres full of magic, poetry and tender full-fledged humor.

Nu is straight and without ornaments: the search of the absurd, the presence of the interpreter, and the relationship between artists and objects, are the main axes in which the spectacle is based on.

A sequence of scenes without a clear logic but able to create illusion atmospheres, unconnected monologues, characters that are constantly facing obstacles to being able to express themselves or to communicate with each other. Helmets, toys, networks, suitcases… they appear on the scene without context, out of place, released from the uses that society taught us to give. Everything is presented in an empty yet imposing frame: a black box with a structure that moves from top to bottom.
