A contemporary circus creation that refers to the ambiguous nature of human choices. A study that starts from the experience of an acrobat among the things that could have been, but were not. We start from the contradiction in the optimistic message that invades the subject. Despite the alienating turmoil that big cities can sometimes provoke, there is still room for the special connections that happened. A reflection of the behaviour of a man trapped in the past by choices yet to be made. We propose a manifesto between sound, dance and circus. An escape from the mass production of reasonable explanations. The idea will be to explore nostalgic ghosts in a neutral space, conditioned by an environment of low frequency sound emissions. Waves that directly influence the subject's behaviour. The Chinese pole, acrobatics and object manipulation are the predominant circus techniques in this solo proposal.
