Cia Delá Praká

The company was born in 2007 in Rio de Janeiro from the meeting of three artists (Marina Collares, Ronan Lima and Julia Franca) who studied at Escola Nacional de Circo – RJ, interested in deconstructing the traditional circus aesthetics through contemporary dance. They created some numbers such as “Claveando”, “Jango”, “Junto” and “Sen-tido” using mainly juggling and dance as a language.
