26/jul 22h Praça D. Maria II (topo norte) | V. N. Famalicão
The acrobat does not stop testing the limits of his own body, pushing it into a never-ending combat, the opponents being the physiological reality, gravity and the laws of physics.
This combat is already lost.
Conscious or not, the only goal is to delay defeat, postpone the moment when age and time will get the better of his strength.
The circus artist is an absurd and tragic hero, the vanity of his combat being what gives it all its beauty. He has no option but to accept his condition: rebellion is his humanity.
