My interplanetary travel companion is Y-shaped, and answers to the name Enginy’o. It can fly, and I’d like to fly aswell, but so far I’m only taming a bicycle. The universe in this show is based on that little prince that we liked so much. This time, however, the character is not small, nor is he a prince, and the bicycles might let you ride them. A magical story full of visual poetry, inspired by the master Brossa and the parareality of Duchamp. An artisanal circus show: the artistic bicycle and the moon-dressed Cyr wheel make up the circus. Inventions and ingenuity make the artisanal.

The music is on. The bicycle wheels fly into the sky. Colorfull looks all around, adults and children staring that beautiful object. They are about to share 40 minutes of an upside down illusion, the smile and the tension of a magical Circus world. An artistic bicycle, dancer and base for acrobatics and pirouettes, and an artist, who brings people together around the world. Anything and everything is possible: lay back, enjoy the show and get ready to be part of it.
With a combination of technique and humor, the artist extracts the poetry of a daily object such as the bicycle.In the rubber of the wheels and in the skin of the acrobat, there are hundreds of streets, squares and scenes that, since the summer of 2013, have written impossible stories in the cities of Canada, Europe, America and the world, bysearching and writing the universal language that is the circus enthusiasm
DETAILS: 40 minutes.Street format.8x8m space.For all audiences.
Discovering the bicycle again, now as a dance partner. It is been a long time we know each other, but we have never danced together. We trust eachother, so it will be easy to let ourselves go. It will take as long as the ephemeral, and then, inevitably, it will be over.
In the middle of the dance floor a space has been opened.The musicians still don’t play, there is silence and a whisper in the air, the expectation is high … This couple, coming from far away, has been around the world and has participated in the most select competitions.They have revolutionized the swing.They have created the Swing on Wheels.
What a fantastic music, and what a great dance, and how fantastic is to ride a bike.Of course, the mix of all is promising.Dance with a bike, be a follower and be a leader exchanging roles all the time.Create this connection so sought after in the couple’s dance, but this time is with an object. The advantage is that it never complains, now, if we do not understand each other, we may end up both on the floor… but this also happens between people.
The bike is not bouncing, so necessary for swing dances (lindy hop, balboa, shag, charleston, …), so we will often lose the rhythm (i had to find an excuse:), but it will be justified by the melody of the fluidity that gives the movement of the wheels . The touch of cinnamon will be the aerial movements, as the dancers call it, where both the bike and me, we will be thrown into the air and, hopefully catched back.
And by the way, this will not be a normal Jam, so I beg the brave dancers not to do stealing.For this time, enjoy the show.

He grabs the Cyr wheel and extend his body – arms and legs extend to infinity, where every little gesture, every detail, finds widht.The artist comes in and out of a simple circle, crosses the space with dynamic movements, shows the force, the inertia, the fluidity … the Cyr wheel transforms into a threshold, a portal that widens the horizons of thespace and the poetics of the body.
The duration is 6 minutes.The stage can be indoor or outdoor, and must have a minimum surface of 6x6m, hard, smooth, flat and clean.
