Circ Panic/Jordi Panareda: MiraT

Work in Development

A giant set of scales stands in the middle of the stage...
MiraT, playing with an exchange of perspectives. From him to himself, both introspective and open to others. From you to him and from him to you. Observing oneself, confronted with one’s own sense of loneliness, making the decision to embark on a journey of self discovery, and transcribing this onto the stage. MiraT, an invitation to observe oneself without complacency or arrogance, but with humour and self derision. In constant pursuit of stability and balance; swinging, spinning and dancing.
MiraT intends to be an invitation to reflect upon the vulnerable state of the human being, a proposal to ponder on the illusory stability of life, in which every one of us, at any moment, could find ourselves in a borderline situation. On stage, a man and a giant set of scales. Playing with weights and counterbalances, he embarks on a journey in constant pursuit of the limits of equilibrium. This physical journey around the geometry of the structure also represents, symbolically, an interior, emotional journey. It is self observation, whilst at the same time exposing himself to the gaze of others. Addressing one’s own loneliness, and overcoming it by exhibiting it on stage. A symbolic journey that every one of us can relate to, a reflection on the significance of important decision making, life changing decisions. Some may leave their birthplace and venture to unknown lands, others find refuge hiding from society itself. Lost souls, in search of a place of their own, people full of fear and hope, resignation and dreams. Each person with their own interior balance that swings between one feeling and another.
