Please note: Company Portmanteau’s performances this coming Friday and Saturday (March 24-25th) have been canceled due to illness. Tiketti will contact all ticket holders.

An additional show has been added to Saturday, April 1st. Cirko will inform when tickets become available for sale.


PERTO is the Portuguese word for ‘near’, ‘close’. It is the conceptual starting point for a transdisciplinary performance which experiments with the potentials of real time video imagery on scenic spaces.

Transforming the meanings of the actions on stage by the simple manipulation of images in an imaginary space, Perto explores technologically mediated relationships and how different modes of communication can intertwine, interact or speak to each other.

Combining contemporary circus, video art, dance and physical theatre, blurring boundaries between ‘virtual’ and ‘real, PERTO creates a complex network of interactions between different universes and the performers themselves.

Through a collection of several tableaux, or short stories, 5 performers share the stage exploring different aspects of our lives and roles in a technologically mediated society.
