Plaça Major de Palma (Main Square)
Àvol vindicates the figure of the artist through four characters who meet, suddenly, with the need to reinvent themselves. The situation that ensues transports them to a scenic universe created from bamboo sticks and ropes. Overcoming new challenges leads them to develop previously hidden skills. Together they explore artistic creation and establish a dialogue with the audience about identity and the feeling of belonging. The work is a comic and reflective manifestation in relation to the current role of culture through the contemporary circus. Circ Bover ends a five-year cycle of research with bamboo and its possibilities applied to the circus. During this time, the company has premiered Vincles, Nòmades, Sentinel and culminates with Àvol. A research work that has been awarded nationally and internationally and that has provided the company with more than four hundred functions around the world.
