Synopsis: No Elbows on the Table is a contemporary circus proposal that takes you to an aquarium of crossed lives in an airtight space. A reflection of the absence of involvement in the community or with the outside world. An organism that lives in an attempt to balance the flaw in the human condition. Changes in directions , intentions and wills that result in an oscillating state of social behavior.
NEOTT encourages us to understand the paradox of the inner balance of each human being through the circus universe. From noise to silence, juggling, the Cyr Wheel, the trapezes, the vertical rope and balance show us how it is possible to condition the daily life of every human being.
NEOTT is a production of INAC – Instituto das Artes do Circo , which integrates students and young circus artists in a multidisciplinary approach , which seeks to affirm new aesthetics of the circus arts and the diffusion of contemporary circus in Portugal.
