Ah, com’è bello l’uomo

Cie Zenhir

Premiered 2017

In a circus tinged with humanity, using ladders, handstands and hand to hand acrobatics, Italian company Zehnir depicts the facets of a person and his never-ending quest to communicate. Rather than condemning, giving food for thought. Rather than shouting, existing. Rather than talking too much, performing in a circus. A duet plus one, a wobbly trio striving to advance intermittently in a world moving faster than humans.
