“DUAL SIM” is a contemporary circus project performed by two jugglers who face the challenge of constant and mandatory sharing of all resources. An investigation on networks, on the forms and schemes of digital sharing. A study on the distribution of objects between two bodies, passes-receptions-shares. A never ending cycle forces the sharing of identity by inhabiting the same space with a Dual SIM (Subscriber Identification Module).
In relation to space-time, we analyze internet network maps on the planet, e-mail or information sharing schemes. These crossed and multiplied lines, which in the midst of confusion, create species of constellations of natural beauty. We cross, with this investigation, a juggling of passes as a mandatory rule. A winding path that crosses over itself with a single composition in the form of electricity that powers the entire circuit.
The two interpreters play the rule of constant sharing, leading the audience to lose the notion of body-body and identity-identity. Investigate the universe of digital sharing, the growth of this distribution, its advantages and dependence. The need for this flow of information and materials. The comparison between these routes and the routes of goods, the distribution of physical materials across the planet in relation to the digital world. Paths – speeds – materials.

ERVA DANINHA appears in 2006 and is dedicated to contemporary circus. The Company’s shows start from social and political themes that it is interested in developing from its own dramaturgical point of view. He develops a choreographic work that crosses circus techniques with everyday situations, actions and objects. He seeks inspiration in life, trying to reproduce it in an extraordinary way, but always trying to maintain a narrative, even if abstract.
