À Mesure - Handle with care is a project by the circus company Accompany ME, composed and founded by the emerging artists Elena Damasio and Monika Neverauskaite, both of whom trained in the Netherlands in the practice of the Cyr wheel, an acrobatic device recently popular in contemporary circus.
The research À Mesure - Handle with care is inspired by the English word pace, which indicates rhythm, pace, cadence. A word that recalls, like the name of the duo, the sharing of the journey with another person and the celebration of Love in its many forms, themes at the centre of the artistic investigation with the Cyr wheel developed in Dialoghi.
The research path is supported in the residency by the collaboration of the tutors Marie Vela and Clémentine Dilé, two artists who take care of the dramaturgical aspect of the project, taking part in the writing and offering an outside view of the movements.
