In this new production, Cru, they expose humanity’s inner fragility and vulnerability with an astounding physical performance. An apparently simple acrobatic duet becomes much more; pulling back the surface to reveal something raw - layers of thought, feeling, pain and humour.
Celebrated for their expressive style of performance, Fet a Mà is led by Pau Portabella and Marta Torrrents, trained at France’s Lido School of Circus Arts in Toulouse and created their company in 2008; artistic collaborator Blai Mateu Trias, is co-artistic director of the Baro d’Evel circus company. Fet a Mà performed at Greenwich + Docklands International Festival in 2011 as part of the Catalan programme of the festival organised in col·laboration with the IRL and FiraTàrrega.
