Sobre Rodas

Everything on wheels! roaming on wheels, talking of wheels, wheeling around each other.
A little troupe, suddenly shows up from the unknown. Mysteriously sliding and opening up a path, presents the delicious story of an ever travelling group of characters exploring encounters among them and the public. Circling around, they address to a present moment in transformation towards a circular world. Spinning and dancing, a poetical perception is drawn upon the limit of some being the infinite of others.
Does the world fit on a wheel?
On Wheels is a deambulation around one’s relation abilities and inner dynamics. It leads to question body limits, as well as the magic of conquering new spaces and intuitions, in and out.
