Between lives and wreckage, we find traces of memories. Death dances among the fields and bodies resist among stones and losses. Through circus, the show explores an abstract universe inspired by the atmosphere of conflict zones. The people of the future always return to the past.

The show is part of the "Panorama - Protagonising New Risks in Contemporary Circus" project, funded by the Partis & Art for Change programme, an initiative of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the La Caixa Foundation, with the support of the Vila Nova de Famalicão municipality and in partnership with institutions that work with people with disabilities. The project lasts for two years (2023/2024) and offers a wide range of activities each year, including an artistic research laboratory, a performance and a public presentation of an inclusive circus show at the Narciso Ferreira Theatre. In this second edition, three young people from the Ribeirão Social and Parish Centre were selected.
