Erva Daninha - 1,5C
At the threshold of survival, an islet tries to resist solitude. With the last natural resources and the agility of its last inhabitant, this piece of land adapts, transforms and renews itself. A reflection on the pollution of the oceans through the relationship between a man and the environment, on an island where plastic mixes with water. A contemporary circus solo, with juggling, manipulating objects and balances, where space, environment and sound take us on a journey of challenges and surprises. On this small island, set up in unusual spaces, the scenario and the action reflect the fragility of the balance between ecosystems, pollution and climate change.

The Erva Daninha company’s mission is to create contemporary circus exploring the dialogue between different expressions of the performing arts. It was officially born in January 2006 created by ESMAE students. Since 2009 the Company’s work focuses exclusively on research into new ways of doing and presenting circus, trying to raise its virtuosity to a form of communication of ideas and emotions.
