Biography

The CIA DELÁ PRAKÁ was born from the meeting of 3 young people who studied at the National Circus School of Rio de Janeiro and  ”Faculdade de Dança Angel Vianna” in Brazil. His first concerns and research were made in 2007 with the aim of deconstructing the traditional aesthetics of the circus through contemporary dance. Investigating mainly juggling (clave, swing and ball contact) they created their first number «Claveando» with support of the Choreographic Center of Rio de Janeiro.

In 2008 they participated in the competition «Malabares Rio» receiving the award of “honorable mention” with the number «Duolado», also presenting at the street theater festival of Angra dos Reis. In 2009, the members of the company Ronan Henrique and Marina Collares travel to Europe and create their first show “Entretreâmbicos” presenting at festivals in France and Spain and also organize their first independent tour of social circus in Africa (Mali and Guiné Conacri) presented in universities , Youth Homes and low-income school.

In 2012 they settled in Barcelona and made their second creation with the support of the Centro Civic Drassanes creating the show «Nois um», a show of Acro dance and Circus. With this work destined for Rua, Cia obtains an important professional insertion acting in renowned Street, Circus and Dance Art Festivals in Europe and Latin America. Today these artists will perform around 300 performances in 14 different countries with this show.

The company develops its own language based on dance, acrobatics, acrobatic duo and a gesture influenced by capoeira. Articulating the sweetness of dance with the impact of the circus in a poetic way, in the search for a three-dimensional body that takes advantage of the natural flow of the movement in an organic way.
