Capas literally means “layer”, “strata” …

Through passing quarrels and games of hide-and-seek, Capas lets us in to a circus version of communal life : convivial, almost family, made from the festive warmth of meetings.

Circus arts mix with music and danse im this show full of poetry and humour.

To rock rhythms and Italian songs a giant and very central cupboard unfolds and reveals its multiple layers.

The music and the movement set the pace, alternating between energy, tenderness and self-mockery. The artists explore the varieties of rhythm and the expressive potential of a technical gesture.

Hand to hand, balance, somersaults and dancing human pyramids; the acrobatics play through all their forms as they explore the “layers” – capas- of personality, of society, at the same time as offering the spectator different layers of interpretation.

A football, a skipping rope, white sheets and the skeleton of a cupboard, all these elements take their turn to become players in the game and the acrobatics.
