"It is there. Around the corner."

What do you need to feel at home somewhere? Filled with irony and absurdity, realism and abstraction, text and body, the trapezist Clara Cortés and the dancer Martina Gunkel are looking for an answer to this question.

In a metal construction, with a radio, a cattle, a plant, a coffee machine and the audience, the two of them create their own familiar reality – at least as crazy, poetic and true as ours.

Efecto R

We are Clara Cortés Soler and Martina Gunkel; two artists which are coming from different backgrounds; circus and dance. Our collaboration started out of an interest in the other one’s discipline and the strong believe in interdisciplinary work. We enlarge ourselves and each other. We give space for something new to emerge by opening up to the unknown.
