Gregarious is not epic, it is not heroic. Gregarious is an honest, sweaty and playful show about the human side of sports. Through acrobatics and comedy the two artists focus on their relation, and on the way they constantly switch between collaboration and conflict. They mix a subtle playful way of acting with a high technical level in their circus disciplines: teeterboard, Chinese pole and partner acrobatics.
