Animal Religion

C.L.A.P.Spettacolodalvivo, in collaboration with Fira Tàrrega, is pleased to present within PLAY-K(ei):
the extraordinary Catalan company with its cult performance, for the first time in Milan.

Indomador is a performance that moves between theatre, dance and contemporary circus. It draws attention to the oddities of the routine of our daily lives and brings to light the animal hidden in all of us.
It is a grotesque parody of modern man and the culturally predetermined difference between the sexes. The artist on stage unveils his animal instinct and transforms the stage into an “animalarium” made of transgenic bodies, acrobatics, man-cocks, dance rituals.
Indomador is a questioning of the relationships between human and animal, male and female.
But what is animal? What is human?


Quim Girón, is 29 years old and comes from Barcelona, Spain.
He does continuous research in the areas of balancing, music, percussion, clowning and animal movement. After studying at the Rogelio Rivel circus school in Barcelona, his travels took him north where he attended LIDO (circus school, Toulouse, France) for a year, finishing his studies at DOCH (University of Circus and Dance, Stockholm, Sweden) with handstand and acro-dance disciplines.

Animal Religion, a Spanish company, is a collaboration between Niklas Blomberg and Quim Giron, both graduates of the University of Dance and Circus in Stockholm. Their work can be defined as a fusion of contemporary circus, dance and music whose main theme is animality. The audience of Animal Religion can observe the artist’s behaviour not as in a zoo, but in an orderly context where something wild can be safely watched.
