Cie SOON: Gregarious

Work in Development

'Gregarious' Tendency to group in herds or colonies, in the case of animals, or in social groups, in the case of individuals. It can also mean the need to be part of a group in other to feel good.

In Spanish we use the same word for what in English is called "domestique" which means "In road bicycle racing, a domestique is a rider who works for the benefit of his team and leader, rather than trying to win the race".

Those two meanings of the same word, inspires this acrobatic duo show that explores the human side of sports in order to talk about the relation of two friends. Showing how they continuously change from conflict to collaboration in a sort of race that will bring them to absurd, poetic and risky situations.

With direction from Joan Català and Angela Wand
