Rubix cube

Unreal and aerial circus

In production – Premiere spring 2020

Indoors – All ages from 8

Walking in the void, making our subconscious speak, making isolated limbs fly…

Like these children who dismantle the alarm clock to know what time is, they create a laboratory of suspended bodies, destruct objects and bodies to create an absurd and surreal atmosphere that reveals the magic of reality. Thus, the fixed frame becomes mobile, the hard frame becomes soft, the upper side of the frame becomes the lower side.

They are in a mobile space, a moving rubix cube where reality becomes the oxygen of action.

Balbàl company

In 2010, Josefina and Daniel met in a circus company in Buenos Aires and started training together in the air. They perform in various events in South America. In 2012, they travel to Europe in search of new encounters, adventures and artistic experiences. This is how one thing led to another, they enrolled at the Ecole supérieure des arts du cirque (ESAC). In 2013, their training will enrich them technically and artistically in all performing arts. In 2016, Josefina and Daniel finished their training at ESAC with a personal creation (EXIT 15 graduation show, ESAC). Since then, they have collaborated with the Théâtre Monfort in Paris, where they still perform in the show Terabak de Kiev. In 2017, they won the silver medal, the public prize and the Moulin Rouge prize at the Festival Mondial du cirque de Demain in Paris. In 2018 the duo joined the Pépinière des Arts du Cirque de Toulouse, for the creation of a long form that will be released in spring 2020. In the meantime, the short form Ningunapalabra comes out, which is played outdoors and indoors.

At the age of 7, she began practicing artistic gymnastics, at 17 she discovered the world of circus and specialized in aerial techniques (fabrics, trapeze, aerial hoop). She joined the Vaiven company and also performed at the Cervantes theatre, as part of a dance company. In 2010, she met Daniel and specialized in aerial management in Argentina and Belgium. A multidisciplinary circus artist, Josefina completed her training in 2016 at ESAC, Ecole Supérieure des Arts du Cirque de Bruxelles.
