An absurd and comic duet of circus, Cul de Sac explores the sometimes gentle, sometimes brutal nature of human relationships. Featuring world-class juggling, dance and acrobatics, performers Gemma Palomar and José Triguero take us through a cycle of love, irritation, pain, euphoria, caress and carelessness as they journey beyond the stereotypical male-female relationship. Combining astonishing physicality with evocative imagery and humour, Cul de Sac is at once entertaining, troubling and touching, light and dark.
Circus for grown ups.
‘The skilled performers have personality.’ – Donald Hutera
‘A tango, of sorts, between Chinese pole star Gemma Palomar and the smoothest of jugglers José Triguero. It was funny, it was dark, and, at points, it was gratifyingly absurd.’ – Lucy Loves Circus
‘Gorgeous, mesmerizing and fun. Very powerful and intimate’
‘Clever, thought provoking, athletic, moving, excellent choreography’
‘Poetry in motion!’
‘This piece had a beating heart, personality and a voice that screamed and whispered’
