While the freighters with their loads of things and humans are challenged by the ocean,
mirages, storms and whales agitate some dudes in the harbour. Waiting to set sail, their
thoughts are pierced by dreams and nightmares as by harpoons, transforming them into jumps,
tricks and dangerous games to deceive time. Laerte pays homage to the ocean, to its majestic
waves that decide which destiny to rake.
Laerte is a show that challenges the ordinary mechanism of creation and production of a circus piece. The show has been created directly on stage and advances together with its spectators, in-side its space, towards its utopically final form. The distance to this result gets endlessly smaller as they advance, but will never disappear, in the same marvellous way as there will always be another last sock that fits into a suitcase.
