A sheep, exiled and excommunicated from her island community for her adventurous spirit, ends up in the city… Is it dangerous to be different? Can she find a new herd here? And can a sheep dance and sing like a superstar?
A show directed by Sergi Estebanell (Cia. Kamchàtka)
Carlo Mô in this adventure only carries a doormat in search of his home, past home, present or future. But the important thing is not the place, but the time you live in – the hours, minutes, seconds…-. Time that flies by, time that doesn’t pass, time lost, dead time, stop time… all the adjectives that give meaning to time. And, of course, who you live with, the need for family and friends.
Nobody buries their loved ones anymore. The new funeral mode is cremation. Grave diggers now can’t find work, just like these pallbearers who wander through the city with a coffin: although of good humour about the old days, they are preoccupied with their dying art and the dead end which lies before them…
This is way too serious to be sad about it…
Street show, clown & physical humor without text. 2 versions: walk act or 40 minutes fix on the spot
****Awarded Best Foreign Performance in Ansan Street Arts Festival ’08 (Korea)****
Carlo Mô appears with a wall on his back, carrying everything he finds, with his absurd survival instinct.
Like the burdens of life, all this sometimes becomes something beloved and necessary, and other times a useless and endless work, similar to that of Sisyphus in Greek mythology or that of Diogenes accumulating emotions and memories.
Absurdity gives meaning to his life and perhaps to ours.

A journey towards the discovery of solutions to physical and emotional limitations
Director: Leandre Ribera
To see, not just look. To experience, not just sense.
PANORAMA redefines the theatrical experience as its rotating viewing cabinet transforms reality into fantasy, provoking our senses and re-mystifying the world we inhabit.
PANORAMA’s innovative approach to theatre is based on a pop-up structure which rotates 360º on its own axis. Through a window, the audience experiences the world outside. Over progressive rotations that world starts to change, evolve, abstract. Not just through the actions and interventions of the actors outside, but also through the general public, who find themselves becoming an integral part the story. The observer is no longer simply a consumer of theatre, but co-creator of it.

An automaton side show/installation
Automatàrium is an installation inspired by the fairground attraction of coin-activated automatons constructed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
In this installation, actors are located within individual booths made of wood and methacrylate (imitating the old buildings) and activated with coins that the audience inserts in a slot.
Once a coin is inserted, colored bulbs light up and circus music plays. The performers begin mimicking the robotic and cyclical movements of the automatons, enacting short actions with elements of comedy, circus, magic, storytelling, song, and mime…
