– The International Street Art Festival gains in intensity with the celebration of its second day
The Catalan company Brodas Bros lands this Friday at the International Festival of Street Art, Mueca, with 'The Army of Light', a futuristic show where the protagonists are four robots that arrive in Puerto de la Cruz ready to illuminate and make laugh to the public of the Festival.
The brothers Pol and Lluc Fruitós and the sisters Berta and Clara Pons form Brodas Bros. The company, created in 2006, combines hip hop, dance and urban culture with LED and laser costumes in its shows. 'The Army of Light' is the show with which they will surprise at Mueca. It will be at 9:30 p.m. in Espacio El Muelle.
The public interested in enjoying the latest proposals in circus arts will find an ally this Friday in Gandini Juggling. Since 1992, the company has spearheaded the quiet revolution in the British circus. With a multidisciplinary team, they bet on circus shows where juggling tries to captivate and start a dialogue with the public. In Mueca they will stage 'Smashed‘ from 9:30 p.m. in the Caixa-Cajacanarias Foundation Space in the Plaza de Europa.
Hours before, the large open-air marquee in Mueca will begin to welcome acrobats, contortionists and clowns from Europe, the Peninsula and the Canary Islands. One of the first to jump onto the track will be the French Le Collectif de la Basse Cour. Three acrobats and a wooden scale as the protagonist, will stage an acrobatic fantasy number that investigates the limits of the feat and the risk.
Sensitive souls and intimate stories are hidden behind a minimalist scenery and fast-paced exercises that will be discovered by the public that visits Puerto de la Cruz this Friday. The show will take place at the Espacio Fundación Caixa-Cajacanarias in Plaza Europa starting at 6:30 p.m.
The Espacio El Muelle hosts at the same time the proposal of the Catalan company Cia La Tal. Created in 1986, its members have managed, over these more than thirty years, to create their own universe in which the characters, aesthetics and situations are focused on a current comedy theater where images and stories share the limelight with the punctual support of the word. His stage proposal moves away from the classic figure of the clown and approaches the current clown. In Mueca they will represent 'The Incredible Box'.
In the middle of the circus and theater shows, Mueca makes a parenthesis to bring his followers closer to the improvised verse. Hand in hand with Yeray Rodríguez and Alexis Díaz, we will travel to the world of stories told in tenths, accompanied by the strings of a guitar. It will be at 6:30 p.m. in the Espacio Loro Parque-Nicko. They will also be able to walk through the world of cabarets with Muebaret at 8:00 p.m. in the Espacio Fundación Caixa-Cajacanarias in Plaza Europa.
For those interested in knowing the new circus proposals, the Italian company Circo Zoé arrives. Sounds of the sea, the horn of a ship loaded with poetry, music, dreams and a crew that stands out in different circus arts are the ingredients of his work: 'Naufragata', an author circus number that can be seen from 8:00 p.m. hours in Espacio El Muelle.
At the same time, the French company Pasvupaspris will perform 'Les moldaves', a show that combines humour, acrobatics and juggling with Slavic music and dance. It will be in the Loro Parque Space- Nicko
Friday night brings other surprises and shows such as those by The Black Blues Brothers company, where five American-style acrobats and dancers, but with Africa in their blood, choreograph themes between somersaults, human pyramids and acrobatic numbers. It will be at 9:30 p.m. at Espacio Loro Parque-Nicko.
Abubukaka and La Pandilla will perform their shows again on a night where Puerto de la Cruz venues will offer concerts, DJ sessions and theater shows within the MásMueca program.
This Friday the streets of Puerto de la Cruz will open up again to words, dance, art and music. Under the title of Ingenuity, Word, Movement, Music and Creativity, they will host street theater shows by the Canarian Reciclown Teatro or the Basque Phil Otajole, music from the 1920s by Pixie-Dixie, the storytelling by Tatiana Castañeda or the show by Ana López-the seer and her old gypsy crystal ball. Not forgetting, the rock and roll of Rock and Mojo Band.
