I like theatre, laughter and green elephants. I have a curiosity for movement and I have fun doing circus. One of my passions is travelling.
In fact, I don't know if I started doing circus to travel or traveling to do circus. But I do know that both thingsare attached to this nomadic life that I enjoy so much.
I travelled to the National Circus School of Cuba (Havana, 1992-93) from where I returned with my graduation Diploma, the Medal of honour of the Museo Nacional de Bellas artes de Cuba and, as every good student, withno Money.
Without even unpacking I flew to work at Spain Mura (Japan 1994). A year of juggling, somersaults and clowning around.
With my saving I went to France to carry on with my studies; I was admitted in the Centre National des Arts du Cirque, (Châlons -en-Champagne, 1997). Oh là là, I became contemporary. I talked to the balls, I tried to imitate the sound of a fried egg and I enjoyeddancing.
France, I was there for a couple of years, I returned, I went back again and back. I worked in several companies and productions. I learned the "art of the clown" with Michell Dallaire. I studied with Compagnie Phillipe Genty and Nouvelle Magic with Raphael Navarro at CNAC. This is what it’s like to be curious.
The Decade of 2000, that really was travelling; it was when I lived in a caravan. What a adventure this circus live! Furtive love affairs on summer nights and the tent of the circus there, as a centre of identity.
Then came setting upmy own company. With my first solo show, "Cartón Combo", I did 161 performances in 72 festivals spread across the 4 continents.
"Acorde", the second show of the Cia, has done so far 365 performances in more than 162 national and European festivals. It has won several Prizes and has done big tours in Germany, Holland, Belgium and France.
Apart from Europe, this showhas been seen in Korea, Colombia, Algeria, Brazil, Turkey and Egypt.
In 1997 I went to Colombia with "clowns without borders", I broke my rib and drank coconut water. I practiced Yoga and studied Kathakali dance in India, French in Madagascar and billiards in Oliete, Teruel.
Sometimes when I sigh, I mean when I fill up my lungs with air and then I let it all out, I feel the desire for new adventures, new projects. The luggage is ready, filled with thousands of stories and if I visit your town or city some of them will escape and joint the river of shared live experiences.
