EXIT, Cirque Inextremiste (France)

May 3


Accustomed to defying the most extreme limits, the French company Cirque Inextremiste and its hot air balloon arrive in Portimão to transform the city’s sky into an unusual scenographic universe, where the aerial acrobatics of the artists cohabit with the stars. The audience is invited to immerse themselves body and soul in an open-air theater, transformed by the flight of the balloon, made into an amusement park by a group of sweet lunatics determined to carry out a single mission: to free themselves from their straitjackets and escape, at all costs, from a world ruled by rigid and implacable rules. in a crescendo towards freedom.

EXIT is an emancipation of the spirit, a powerful, luminous and unifying artistic breath, a demonstration of the porous border between art and madness.
