The company “Mano a Mano Circus” was formed in 2010 in order to exchange information, to join techniques, and to create new ideas to transmit and express through the circus.
It was formed by artists coming from different areas: gymnastics, physical education, circus, theater, dance. The group brings together circus disciplines (aerial acrobatics, Chinese pole, Cyr wheel, mini-tramp, juggling, floor acrobatics, rebound juggling, whips, unicycle, lights and fire) continuously playing with comedy, live music and defying gravity as well.
Mano a Mano Circus is the union of two local and foreign circus companies, which under the same growth target, seeks to develop shows with high technical and expressive content.
Through the shows, Mano a Mano Circus aims to keep the tradition of circus family and street performances, reaffirming them in society and in any space, city, neighborhood or theater, as they are part of the cultural movement of the people.
Since 2010, the company has performed its shows in the city of Rosario, different cities in Argentina and abroad, in countries such as Peru, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, Venezuela and Mexico.
