Alice and Marcel met by chance in 2011 during the creation of the show "Circoparola" of the Pantakin company from Venice.
From this moment their streets come together and begin through their circus show and street theater "una coppia scoppiata", to bring their art to various squares in Italy.
Two totally different worlds, separated by an entire ocean, which find in the circus arts the way to unite and express their own cultural roots.
