Dupla Mão na Roda – Strongmen
Alan Pagnota and Rafael Ferreira
Alan and Rafael use the time-honoured circus art of hand balance as the basis of their performances. Rafael was born with a pathology called Congenital Arthrogryposis and although he has needed a wheelchair throughout his entire life, this has never prevented him from becoming a gifted artist. Alan is a talented performer who perfected the art of clowning by touring with the Blue Man Group and performing on Broadway for many years. Together they combine Alan’s incredible upper body strength with Rafael’s muscle control to create a performance of playful poetry with their bodies.
