The story of circoPitanga is, like every story, a unique story. But what characterizes it perhaps the most is its multicultural background and various influences that give it both a diversified yet universal composition.
Loïse Haenni and Oren Schreiber, both co-founders of the company, met in the National Circus School in Rio de Janeiro in 2008. Shortly after, they started training together and decided to create a first show “Rêves d’été“ (Summer dreams) in Buenos Aires. After presenting it over three years in 15 countries of Europe, they created in 2014 two new shows: *CIRCUS* and “Nuptial Ropes”.
The influences of different cultural experiences, backgrounds and techniques reflect, on the original style of the performances but especially on the capacity of the artists to recreate universal emotions through body language in a subtle, poetic and always accessible and entertaining way.
Passionate about acrobatic duos, Loïse and Oren worked on a specific technique of portées on a single attachment point. Designing their path, they studied with different teachers around the world, of which: Mme Délizier, ENC, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil; Yuri Sakalov & Vyacheslav Kukushkin, ESAC, Bruxelles, Belgium; Mahmoud Louertani, cie XY-CRAC, Lomme, France; Igor Matyushenko, Vertigo, Turin, Italy; Irina Teplova & Michael lvov, National School of Circus Art, Moscou, Russia.
