the fragility of memory


At the end of the 80’s, Pini and Aguja play their childhood on the sidewalk; land of friends, loves and first battles at siesta time. The years push and the days in the neighborhood lose their innocence. When forgetfulness and frontiers are imposed, resistance also ignites. Theater and circus merge to narrate a story of encounters, losses and embraces in the midst of the outdoors. Two beings on their journey of growing up, searching for dreams and roots that always lead elsewhere.


About the Play

In the fall of 2020, this theatrical craft began to take shape, promoted by the Chilean-Argentinean circus company Tallarín with Banana and Severo Callaci, actor, director and playwright from Rosario. The team is later joined by Daniel Calistro, Chilean actor, director and technician.

Between the intimate and the universal, the singular and the collective, this fiction navigates through landscapes of childhood, adolescence and youth somewhere in South America in the 1980s and 1990s.

Theater and circus; dance, music and aerial acrobatics combine to narrate a neighborhood story that explores identities, breaks down borders and bets on the power of bonds in times of uncertainty.

A theater and circus play for all audiences.
