Trajetória

The company Solas de Vento was created in São Paulo in 2007 as a partnership between frenchman Bruno Rudolf and brazilian Ricardo Rodrigues. Since its beginnings, the company has explored the blending of gestural theatre, circus techniques, contemporary dance and live video. The coming together of these elements generates a theatrical style which moves between genres, provoking original and unusual physicality, spaces and situations.

Every performance is an invitation for the audience to free their imagination and to share in the playful and quirky world of the characters; their encounters, their conflicts and their adventures.
