"Juggling is a language"
put a spell on you
tunnel is about dreams and ambitions. two companions with a desire to ascend from the tunnel. to celebrate, to live one moment of greatness, to sacrifice and be accepted. tunnel is an invitation to travel to their world, where the dream to rise up faces the fear of the chase.

put a spell on you is a ceromony, it’s a ritual, where the world of objects and music meet, to transform and inspire one another, to struggle and persist, to opress, to support, “make your own magic.”
“In a closed and intimate performance, two artists synchronise their music and circus skills to offer the audience a unique show. The effect of their stage work is magic in all its forms and disguises. The hypnotising rhythm of the performance fill the entire space of the circus tent. Live music and sounds coming from the console create a show using aspects of juggling, object manipulation and theatrical movement. The performers make musical instruments and juggling props speak one language. It's a real artistic fusion! The audience feel its vibrations on their own skin and hear the pulse of the play in the sounds of a drum, saxophone, triangle, falling balls, or drops of water. Maleta Company create their own magical reality in a circus tent and let the audience forget about the everyday rhythm of life for an hour.

Boa Noite is the tale of a table; and two visitors who wish to populate it. A tale of borders and space, friendship and tension.
Where the rural meets the urban, two thinkers collide.
