Five men on stage are, just five men

We see five men on stage. They are normal men, they are up on a stage. Different from each other and all the same. They take care and push one another, they celebrate together. They are throwing knives against their own shadows, looking inside themselves, moving the spotlights to illuminate different spaces, showing their privacy and undressing to listen. Men who constantly question themselves but gloat over their own identity… after all, they are five men.

In Suspensión, everything we see is the outcome of two years of work by a great team. Juggling choreographies have been trained and reviewed to the limit, the music has been composed during creation, the scenery has been constantly evolving, the magic has been endlessly trained, the recordings of our parents, brothers, grandmothers and girlfriends have been remade until the essence of this proposal has been distilled. A task with ourselves and with everything else.

Suspensión is a show designed to transmit. Contemporary circus in which we would like the public to see themselves and be moved. It is our ball thrown into the air that reaches the moment of suspension, the moment when everything can happen, the moment when we can give in to gravity or make different choices, the moment when a ball floats and, with it, all of us on stage hold our breath.

The moment of suspension.
