Al Cubo by Betti Combo (France)

Three buffoon characters search for the perfect construction, the most fragile balance, using plastic buckets and a Chinese pole. Exploding on stage with enthusiasm and clumsiness, they help and defy each other in equal measure.

The show premiered in 2012 in Madrid as part of the Contemporary Circus Marathon. The trio behind Betti Combo first met at Flic Circus School in 2008, and later trained together at Le Lido circus school in Toulouse, where this show was developed. The long format show “Alcubo” will premier at the beginning of 2014.
