Amer i Àfrica Circ cia

Premiered 2018

Above all else, Envà is 125 kg of human flesh and 250 kg of straw*.

The two artists, he, Amer and she, Àfrica, perform an allegory of the mental barriers we raise against each other and from which we constantly try to free ourselves. Hand to hand, ground-to-air acrobatics and handstands reveal in a humourous way the peculiarities of human relationships and all our efforts to communicate with the other without barriers.
