Side Kunst Circus

This event is related to the sections: Shows


The Circo Mano a Mano association in collaboration with the Side association present a new contemporary circus project. A new edition of the "Winter Circus", after the resounding success achieved last year by the CiRcO PaNiKo company, which inaugurated the era of the contemporary circus in Cagliari with its usual "sold-out" events.
This year the Side Kunst Cirque has taken up the challenge, invited by the Circo Mano a Mano association, already known and appreciated in the area for the famous SA RUGA event.
An international team of artists will perform at the entrance of the Molentargius Natural Park to give citizens and tourists the magic of contemporary circus once again. The event will offer the characteristic admission by donation formula.
Back from a European tour, the Circus Side arrives in Cagliari with the appreciated show entitled Laerte.
But what is Laerte?
While the freighters with their loads of things and humans are challenged by the ocean, mirages, storms and whales agitate some dudes in the harbour. Waiting to set sail, their thoughts are pierced by dreams and nightmares as by harpoons, transforming them into jumps, tricks and dangerous games to deceive time. Laerte pays homage to the ocean, to its majestic waves that decide which destiny to rake.
Laerte is a show that challenges the ordinary mechanism of creation and production of a circus piece. The show has been created directly on stage and advances together with its spectators, in-side its space, towards its utopically final form. The distance to this result gets endlessly smaller as they advance, but will never disappear, in the same marvellous way as there will always be another last sock that fits into a suitcase.
