La Famiglia Mirabella looks like a contemporary version of the circus of the past, but its true origin lies in street theater of the twentieth century. Energy, juggling, mime, acrobatics, dance, theater, music…,these are the components of this unique event. In public squares, empty and lifeless up to a moment before, a Dutch bike suddenly appears with three wheels, unicycles of various sizes, pins, balls, music and five characters with gaudy apparel, hats and vests: they are Edoardo, Elisabetta and their children, Martin, Matilde and Mael.
The rhythm of ska music draws the crowd toward the special unit/group, the public collects slowly around them, children and adults define a stage using the color of the pavement. The curtain rises before the eyes of the public,and… The show begins! Breathtaking acrobatics on rola bola, with a lot of hulla hoop and juggling, and dance that bursts like a whirlwind of joy, followed by many stunts and smiles of children, which often evolve into collective laughter. Now the time come to leave you speechless! Even for the most demanding…, the performance rips a loud, uncontrollable applause from everyone.
Like a musical score of music, “andante” ma non troppo/but not too much, the show comes to an end on unicycles and a high unicycle. The people’s faces look enraptured and attentively watch the clubs passing at a height of two meters. The show is breathtaking. It’s an hour of visual comedy, street theater and participation, where virtuosity and humanity come together in an unique atmosphere.
