The company Nuvem Voadora has a very consistent roaming program, taking its creations to several cities in Portugal and abroad. The Espumante Brothers are one of the reference projects. This clown band has performed all over the world, from refugee camps in Palestine, to hospitals or prisons, remembering the importance of respect for human rights.
