TEIA (parallaxes of the imaginary) is a visual poetry, metaphor of paths that cross, permeate, transform. The show narrates the most profound journey of Cia Nós No Bambu, which surprises with its innovative poetics in bamboo sculptures, mixing circus, theatre and dance. TEIA is a oneiric testimony about life, in which the spectator's gaze is enveloped by alternative, interchangeable realities, drawn by their imagination and affection.


The narrative of the show proposes a journey, where the creative performers express themselves through the web of life. This web is constructed with the parallaxes of the imaginary, which represent the alternate movements of thought. The charm of this journey through the web is precisely to let oneself be carried away by the oneiric universes reached through the bamboo sculptures. And to get lost in these imaginary paths of the infinite possibilities of parallaxes.

The show is the result of two years of research in two main areas: bamboo sculptures and the artistic and technical improvement of its creative performers. The montage counted with renowned international and national artists. The web that Cia Nós No Bambu wove into this show was a significant step in the challenging construction of original poetics, aesthetics and technique, inspired by the relationship with bamboo. This project was made possible by the Petrobras Cultural Maintenance of Circus Companies public sponsorship.
