Discover Your Clown

This workshop provides a safe space for games and provocations to find the idiot within you!

I am originally from Barcelona (Spain) but am now based in Melbourne. I started my performance career with classical and contemporary dance between 2005 and 2009. In 2009 I became interested in circus arts and started training at Rogelio Rivel Circus School (Barcelona). I specialised in aerial acrobatics working with Pili Serrat (fix and doubles trapeze), Antonia Ruiz (corde lisse) and Emiliano Ron (acrobatic corde lisse). In 2016 I graduated from John Bolton’s Theatre School and carried out some extra training in physical theatre with Born in a Taxi (Melbourne) and clown with Giovanni Fusetti (Italy). In Australia I have performed in the following festivals: Western Australian Circus Festival 2015 presenting my solo aerial rope act. Melbourne Fringe Festival 2015 as part of the cast for ‘No Punchline’ winner of two awards, including Best Circus. Melbourne Fringe Festival 2016 and Perth Fringe World Festival 2017 as part of the cast for 4+4=4.
