Circus brings together a lot of genres—family, cabaret, dance, art and theatre—all brought together by a bit of magic and mystery. Thanks to its wide-ranging characteristics, the circus has managed to position itself in the forefront of contemporary performing arts and, this month, Mercat de les Flors presents their ‘Here and Now Circus’, a series of performances that takes conventional circus further than it has gone before. More than just a show to entertain, the various events taking place in this series encourage the audience to demystify the magic and illusion before their eyes; just as a juggler manages three balls with only two hands, and one trapeze holds two trapeze artists, the ideas of problem-solving and unravelling the truth are part of these special circus acts. From tightrope walking with a twist to acrobatic displays with live music, Mercat de les Flors are redefining the weird yet wonderful world of circus, capturing both our hearts and minds.
