Alexis and Paulo Fernández are a father and son who bring a fireworks display to the stage that analyzes their relationship. An engaging dance between huge and colorful inflatable installations that aims at comparing two different generations in order to analyze the concept of masculinity with humor and love, starting with the pink unicorn that the teenager Paulo has as the wallpaper of his mobile phone and that his father Alexis would have been ashamed to use in his teenage years. Between acrobatic moves and storytelling moments, the show presents a relationship that is proudly charged with tenderness between a father and a son who are not afraid to say that they love each other.

La Macana is a company based in Galicia that was founded in 2009 by the Galician choreographer and producer Caterina Valera and the choreographer of Cuban descent Alexis Fernández.
