Punto y Coma are not here.
Their world doesn't exist.
If you can see them you are a privileged person.
In their fantastic world objects are alive, movement talks and the words fly away. They coexist in a forgotten space lost in time, in a strange place where images dance and fragility tremble... It is a unique space inhabited by books, strange beings and reinvented objects; a magical and surprising place disturbingly familiar.
They are complicatedly simple, emotionally logical and nostalgically funny ... In their poetic world, things are not what they seem, Punto y Coma either.
This eccentric couple makes the absurd something vital and turns the everyday into an experience of extraordinary dimensions. Together they present a fun universe where logic is transformed through the actions and relationships of two eccentric characters in a book garden. Their reality can be confusing, their reckless actions, their intimidating aspect ... but do not fear, in spite of everything they are ridiculously harmless.
PUNTO y COMA is a contemporary scenic proposal that explores the boundaries of Circus-Theatre, taking its inspiration from Expressionism and the Theater of the Absurd, it explores the concepts of “culture” and “knowledge” exploring the poetic and expressive possibilities of contemporary circus and physical theater.
El Cruce develops with Punto y Coma a language of its own with which to transmit a unique, risky and terrifyingly absurd experience to the spectator.
1º prize Festival CIRCADA off unia (Sevilla) 2016
The contemporary circus company El Cruce is created from the encounter between Nicoletta Battaglia and Ruben Río.
They founded a common interest in the research and development of contemporary stage practices, using circus and physical theatre as their main ways of expression.
Cia El Cruce explores the boundaries of physical and gestual expression through a mixture of contemporary circus techniques,live music and physical theatre.
The company plays by means of image an action, developing an unique poetry filled by suggestions and symbolism, playing subtlety the tensions of fragility and the mystery of fears, desires and relationships, sticking out a personal interpretation of the serious comedy of absurd.
Why “El Cruce”?
(The Spanish word “Cruce” has different interpretations “cross, junction, intersection, interchange natural mixture”)
It is in the Cruce where there are new possibilities, it is a place to reflect about the walked path, a place where the doubt appears, a place of curiosity, a new point for choosing the future.
El Cruce because we believe diversity means richness, in cultures, in thought, in arts and expression.
It is a point where the opposites meet, a place for balance.
Cruce generates a new kind that takes the best of both parts, it is cooperation, surprise, evolution
El Cruce is a point that offers new directions, it presents a pause to feel and think back, it is the end of a road and the beginning of a new one.
