Two Brazilian artists use aesthetics and images which are often unfamiliar, working with their own movements, transmitting sensations, emotions... A work of art, either sweet or aggressive, sometimes spontaneous and delicate, sometimes tense and hard.
Marta Chaves and Rosiris Garrido met at the National Circus School in Rio de Janeiro, where they started to choreograph the duo. During that time, they were also part of the circus troupe Atrupelados — a company which melded circus, theater and live music. Ouro composed part of the troupe repertoire directed by Geraldim Miranda, choreographed by Dani Lima and Allain Veulleux. In 1997 the duo was invited to perform at the Festival International du Cirque du Demain.
The Festival in Paris represented an open door to an international career of the performers. The duo was invited to join the cast of Cirque du Soleil for the show Pomp Duck and Circumstances where it had the choreography re-worked by André Simard. The aerial duo has already been performed in Brazil, France, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Holland and Thailand.
