GREGARIOUS is a wonderful anti-heroic study of the human side of sport – in the midst of competition and fraternity. Team spirit against rival.
In English, “gregarious” is a term for animals and people who thrive the best in a group. And in Spanish, ‘gregario’ is a water carrier – a helper who must sacrifice himself to lead his team captain to victory in road cycling.
Based on their own friendship and partnership, the two artists have created a new circus gem bursting with charm, energy and bubbly humor. With absolute superior physics, spectacular performances and witty bites, they put the human nature at the forefront and makes us recognise and laugh at ourselves.
Company Soon is a circus company created by the two acrobats and friends Nilas Kronlid and Manel Rosés. They studied on the Circus Program at DOCH/Stockholm University of the Arts in Stockholm, graduating in 2010. Since then they have worked in many different shows and companies, including Cirque du Soleil, Cirkus Cirkör and many more. They were awarded a Gold Medal at the Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain. In 2016 they decided it was time to make a show of their own; the result is Gregarious.
