No Pain, No Gain
Double trapeze 

No Pain, No Gain

Double trapeze 

Adults/Night

We live in a world where pain and suffering are the daily reality of many. In the Western world we have transformed this suffering in pleasure, enjoyment, consumption.
Today's society constantly draws us with adrenaline, the feeling of approaching to death, and pain is the first link in this chain.
We come into the world with pain and we live this world with pain.
What is our role? Are we dominant or dominated?
This performance shows how the perversion and domination is reflected in us beyond the political and economic hierarchies, beyond the visible.
No pain, no gain.

Set in an aesthetic of the sadomasochistic scene, the duo dominant-submissive on the trapeze shows the dark and wild personality of the game of roles and how they change, mutate and force us to take off our masks of prejudice.

In the beggining, the submissive is blindfolded, and with her dance she calls the dominant, who will take her up to the trapeze where they will play until changing their roles to make the most complicated stunts without being able to see, only feeling the danger.
