Esquerdes is a circus show which combines the balance ladder, air elements and live music by means of three bodies in a give-and-take game between desire and escape.With its own language between tragedy and comedy, Hotel iocandi puts the circus technique and live music at the service of a universe full of questions about the human being’s fragility.
Cia Hotel iocandi
Hotel iocandi was born in 2012 when Tomeu Amer and Griselda Juncà are after finishing their training at the Rogelio Rivel circus school in Barcelona. During this first encounter they create Esquerdes , a short piece that has been selected for the project Caminos Emergentes 2013 and that has been presented in multiple festivals in Catalonia, Spain, France and Italy.
At the beginning of 2013, the singer Joana Gomila joins the project and together they begin the creation of their first show. The premiere of Esquerdes took place in October 2014 during the Festival Scene Poblenou in Barcelona.Since then they have performed in several festivals around Spain, Italy, Germany and Belgium.
