What if one day imagination disappeared?

In a grey world, two adults manage to immerse themselves in the imagination of children, where everything becomes possible again and the boundaries between the real and the unreal are not yet established. Suddenly and unwittingly, one of them "ends the life of imagination"; crisis and panic invade them, and just at that moment when everything seems lost... a ladder becomes a ship.


Through circus, acrobatics, dance, manipulation of objects, and a unique puppet, the characters create simultaneously absurd and poetic situations, brimming with magic and fantasy. 


Xavi Sánchez and Analia Serenelli are circus artists specialising in object manipulation, acrobatics and dance. They met in 2015 at Cirque Plume, a French group pioneering contemporary circus. Since then, they have been exploring acrobatics, dance and the relationship between the body and objects together. 

In 2018, they founded the group "Rauxa" with the aim of creating their own universe in which they can express their tragicomic and at the same time poetic vision of life.


Xavi started his training at the Carampa Escuela de Circo (Spain) and continued his studies at the École de Cirque Theatre Cirqule de Geneve (Switzerland), CRAC Centro Regional des Arts du Cirque de Lomme (France) and at the Le Lido School in Toulouse (France). He has taught experimental acrobatics at Codarts (Netherlands), Escuela de Circo Rogelio Rivel and Escuela de Circo Carampa (Spain), Centro cultural Trivenchi, La Plata and La Fabrika (Argentina), among others.

Analia first competed in professional sports, achieving high results as a rhythmic gymnast. She soon began training in contemporary dance and circus, with a focus on acrobatics and aerial acrobatics. Among others, she was a member of Innovacirco and BigCircus (Argentina).
