Triggered by the recent discoveries on the immigrant journey, the Nouveau Sud project embarked in a theatrical investigation with the goal of creating a Contemporary Circus piece that would bring attention to the treacherous journey that some of our community members endure, while making this story accessible, and relatable. Masks, acrobatics, and the flying image of a train will serve as guiding light for our audiences in this journey. La Bestia is an interactive experience on and off the stage; site-specific pop-ups, community workshops and post shows conversations are included. We aspire to create poetry through acrobatics and spoken word.
