Sport is heroic. Sport is epic. The sports performance Gregarious is neither of these things. Two competitive acrobats, dressed in 70s Adidas outfits, highlight the hidden side of sport. With trial and error, poking and prodding, frolicking and playing, and a large dose of humour, they search for the truth that lies hidden in competition. For the twelfth man, the audience, this performance is an excellent workout for the funny bone.
Company Soon is a relatively new endeavour that sees Nilas Kronlid and Manel Rosés, two friends and acrobats, mix dry humour with high-quality physical skills.
This duo specialises in multiple disciplines including partner acrobatics, teeterboard and Chinese pole.
The title of their performance – ‘Gregarious’ – literally refers to ‘the tendency of human beings to group together in herds or colonies’.
But in the world of cycling ‘Gregarious’ has another meaning. The Spanish ‘Un gregario’ refers to a rider who works in the service of their team rather than pushing for an individual win. Very noble of course, but a ’gregario’ will never be a winner. Pondering the implications of this, the duo creates a performance that, above all, trains your laughter muscles.
