“Tug of War“
“The street is a fantastic place to perform. There you can make unique presentations” (Mr. Tartuffo) What if we set aside our obligations for a moment to help someone fulfill his dream? What if instead of thinking that there are impossible feats, we dare to conquer them? That is what Mr. Tartuffo has proposed: breaking the rules of balance. But to do so, he will need the help of the audience.”Tug of War” is a show that combines juggling, balancing, magic and comedy. A circus show that relies on improvisation and audience participation and with which the artist seeks to put into value the Machiavellian maxim that “never was anything great achieved without danger.” An unusual show that has traveled around the world and tells us about the limits we put ourselves daily, the challenges and about how these can be achieved if we get someone’s support.

Rodrik is a multi-instrumentalist musician who has been dedicated since 2008 to the study and exploration of several exotic instruments from different parts of the world.
Didgeridoo, Bansuri, berimbau, guitar and varied percussions are some of the instruments explored in this path of constant search for new sonorities and musical languages.
Rodrik had contact the didgeridoo and the handpan in 2006, when he lived in Barcelona, and since that day he was fascinated by the peculiar and spatial sound coming from both instruments.
At the beginning of 2008, he began to learn to play didgeridoo in an autodidact manner, finding in it a strong form of expression, which inevitably intensified the relation with its musicality.
Since 2010, Rodrik has started his career as a performer, having performed in various festivals stages such as the Boom festival, Fatt, Didg.E.Vent Berlin, Luso Zen Festival, Festival Etnias / Ollin Kann, among many other events.
Apart from the stages, Rodrik has always shared his music in the streets of several European cities, believing that the root of the music comes from the conviviality of the people in the street.
In 2013, he was able to acquire his first Handpan and since then has been exploring the infinite musical possibilities that it offers.
