YOLO is a circus show for all audiences, which is full of energy, strength and rhythm. The live music and the performance of the different circus disciplines are related within a perfect score that give the piece coherence and solidity.
The play tells us about the difficulties and possibilities of effort and abandonment, of fear and daring, of defeat and triumph, of individualism and collectivity. With a clear pedagogical profile, YOLO is a piece that speaks of the different realities that we encounter along the way and places special emphasis on the support of the group, of the peers.
Dangerous jumps, impossible launches, infinite flights are just some of the ingredients that the spectator will surely not be able to forget. It is a risky and a unique proposal in our country, which will make a difference in the exploration of new languages without any doubt.
The rhythm of an exciting music composed expressly for the work, performed live, together with the precision in each movement, launch or jump, make up a perfect score that gives coherence and meaning to YOLO.
