WHAT CHARACTERIZES US We are an artistic company committed to the original creation of projects with a high level of identity, poetics, production and technique. Our creations are means to communicate, mobilize and transform human and social reality, helping to generate new imaginaries, reflections, symbols that feed the generation of new and diverse possible realities. We are interested in beautifying, improving and evolving everyday life through art.

OUR CREATIONS Our productions are characterized by having two main values: to be authentic and faithful to the essence and identity of the creators and to have a high metaphoric and symbolic, as well as technical content. The works have a particularly dreamlike, visual, surreal, poetic and acrobatic quality. The bet is towards creating our own scenic language, with high individual and cultural identity , in which the technique and the content make symbiosis and allow messages to emerge with diverse layers of analysis and contents of interest for both the Colombian and international scenic sectors.
Dospuntos represents the creative, communicative and transformative urgency that the company decides to express through languages that go beyond words. The company seeks constant research and scenic innovation by fusing different languages to achieve new artistic expressions: circus techniques, dance, physical theater, performance, butoh dance, live music, audiovisual design, photography, plastic arts and technology are our creative tools.
The Company's base artists specialize in various circus techniques such as aerial duo, acrobatic balances, aerial acrobatics with different objects, Chinese pole, juggling, capillary suspension, manipulation of light and fire, acrobatic dance, among others.
