A multidisciplinary circus shows by one of the most outstanding artists in the contemporary circus
Ahir is an interdisciplinary circus show that unites body, light and sound and speaks to us about the relationship of the past with the present. The use of objective data collected the day before the performance creates a bridge that connects yesterday with today. This union is where the show takes place.
The directions of yesterday’s wind writing the choreography of the circus artist; yesterday's air temperature setting the intensity of light of a scene or the yesterday’s movement of the birds across the sky writing musical melodies are three of the examples that can be seen performed in the show.
The trip suggested by the artists is altered according to the data of the previous day, determining the show every time it is performed and achieving a piece close to site-specific full of details, poetics, risk, freshness and surprising images.
Animal Religion works to innovate circus and find new means of expression. From the beginning of its creations it shares a space in which light, body and sound/music emerge simultaneously to create its identity. This is the ninth show since the start of the company in 2012.
