Company Oliveira & Bachtler: OTUS

Tour Ready

Two beings living in an abstract world, Otus is rooted in human nature. Here is a unique perspective, a glimpse into their lives, motivations, relationships and habits. Utilising circus, physical theatre, movement, clown and set design Otus explores tension, the space between characters, objects and the wooden world in which they reside. With precarious piles of cut wooden planks, a rope, table and trapeze, their peculiar domain is set. Immersed in their own nuances and rendered through acrobatics, juggling, rope, trapeze and staff manipulation, their world unfolds.

The show was not aimed towards family audiences, but is family friendly with children +4

Current state of project

Our first stage of development was in 2013 through the Wales Millennium Centre's Incubator program.
Creative producer of dance, Coreo Cymru, in association with Chapter, NoFit State and the Arts Council of Wales supported the development of Company OTUS, Oiveira & Bachtler and a small tour through Wales.
Arts Council of England gave support and funding to the development of both OTUS and Company Oliveira & Bachtler as well.
We have received support in kind from The Black-E, CASE Cultural do Porto and Cia UMPorUM.
