Proxima centauri

Residency june 2023

Proxima Centauri is a project born with the aim of creating a stage piece where the dramaturgical structure is given by the phases of a star’s life from its birth to its death in a particular explosion.

Each scene takes as a reference one of the 5 phases of a star’s life: collapse, equilibrium, collapse and explosion, shine Shine and blur.

The project combines astrophysics with circus, movement and electronic music through several elements: a cyr wheel, a floor full of leaves, 2 pendulums and water.

These elements are used to weave the piece, taking as a guiding thread a personal experience: when a confused child becomes obsessed with astrophysics.

Resident show at Fàbrica Fabra i Coats and La Central del Circ, and which is part of the Festival Z program.
