The company was born in Barcelona at the beginning of March 2015, when Adrián Pérez Ramos, Albert Estrada Sanchez and Bernat Messeguer Perez (ES) decided to begin a journey to deepen the work that began with the show Jo:6 by the company La Jove de la la Galeria. Later, in June of the same year, a fourth person joined the project, Bàrbara Vidal Pascual (ES), with whom they began the creative process In-Confort.

The company’s second production, Cafuné, began in May 2017 and is based on an acro-dance duo interpreted by Bernat Messeguer and Barbara Vidal, accompanied by live music by the Majorcan singer/songwriter Adrià Bauzà. The show was first performed in June 2018 at Festival Circada (ES), which has become the co-producer.

CAFUNÉ

The caress as a relational gesture:
a sweet caress that sometimes hides feelings of frustration, a bitter caress that uncovers the sincerest feelings or a playful caress which can unfold into an infinity of adventures. The harmonic equilibrium between these accords and disaccords is what human relationships are made up of.
In Cafuné, two individuals fight to grow together via a game of manipulation, caresses and disagreements; together, but never losing the essential essence of each one, maintaining their own individuality. This coexistence leads to different situations, written using choreographic, circensian and theatrical language, with a musical score which reveals the roots of each of the actors.

Being the company’s second project and continuing in the ambit of human relationships, the artists propose a sincere piece in which all audiences can feel themselves reflected: the difficult balance between two individuals that constitutes a relationship.

In spite of the simplicity of the plot, the piece stands out for the physicality of the two performers when representing the different states of a relationship, using their own language, which springs from a symbiosis between circus and dance. In this way, the acrobatics, the pair acrobatics and the handstands fuse with the choreography, all following a theatrical structure which breaks down the contemporary nature of the piece and makes it very close and personal.
