Gregarious

  • Soon Circus Company

Two sublime circus artists. The best of friends and the biggest competitors. Fiercely they struggle to be best, fastest, strongest. They compete until the last drop of sweat and drive each other mad.

Gregarious is a wonderfully anti-heroic study of the human side of sports – in between competition and fraternity. Team spirit against rivalry. In English, “gregarious” is a term for animals and people who feel most at ease in a group. And in Spanish, ‘gregario’ is a water carrier – a helper who must sacrifice himself to lead his team captain to victory in road cycling.

From 4 years

Motivation of the jury:

A contemporary circus performance about the relationship between the two friends Nilas Kronlid and Manel Rosés. In suitable sports attire, two men use the language of acrobatics in the most natural of ways, drawing their audience into an upbeat meeting between them. With humour, warmth and physical feats on springboards and Chinese poles, the artists challenge human nature and make us recognize and laugh at ourselves. Here and now.
