Rodrigo Foka Castanheira is a talented circus performer with a big heart from Brazil.

He specialises in juggling, contact juggling, diablo and balancing all sorts of things on his chin, including my bicycle!

I had the pleasure of hanging out with him one wintry afternoon in the historic fishing town of Buarcos to film some of his tricks. He currently works across Portugal, Spain and Brazil.

About Michael Meneghetti

The little personal details can often be overlooked in the hustle of the city, but somewhere on the edge I always manage to stumble upon a little bit of visual gold! When I can, I make performances that explore a state of masculinity and curate video art for public spaces.
