Presented by Joan Català
A beautiful and heart warming performance that removes the boundaries between dance, circus, theatre and performance...And between the audience and the show.
This unique performance is based on the study of the body, movement, people’s behaviour, craftsmanship and traditions. One show is never the same as Joan creates to show with the audience.
PELAT is silence, expectation, strength, tension, and magical, spontaneous participation.
PELAT is body poetry.
PELAT is innovation, movement and collective action.
PELAT is a risky, sincere, different, peculiar and daring approach.
It is an original performance combining dance, theatre and circus.
