I am interested in staging which generates universally understandable situations, ones that connect equally with both adult and children. In order to achieve this, I try to overcome language barriers through various communicative techniques and by changing words for music, onomatopoeia, movement, mime and great doses of good humor. A timeless good humor that, without expiration date, can criticize different aspects of modern society; Such as rigidity of standards, technological progress or the shallowness in which we live in today.
I really love fregolism (an art which involves acting at full speed), that is why my shows are often fast, at the rate of a music video. I use the visual gag as the main tool to create scenarios that work as a clockwork mechanism.
I look for actors who perform a skillful and energetic interpretation, working with a texture similar to those of the clown: honesty, distance and exaggeration. I like to count on creativity and imagination of each member of my team, since I believe collaboration is the key to a great job.
I have been influenced by popular court arts such as street theater, commedia dell arte, cinema or cartoons. In every show I express how different techniques coexist, such as acrobatics, magic, dance or Chinese shadows. Minimalist and suggestive sets captivate me, as well as taking care of every sound detail in order to accentuate, accompany or produce contrast.
In short, I want my staging to be extroverted, funny and brilliant, as I consider that entertainment is theater’s ultimate goal, even when trying a deep subject or telling a sad story.
I am a freelance theater director residing in Barcelona. I have studied Direction and Drama at the Institut del Teatre de Barcelona (2011-2016).
Since I moved to Barcelona I have directed several shows, both visual and text (La Intrusa, Modern Family Circus, Atlantis, Le Freak or The Professionals) and I have assisted directors like Roberto Romei, Andrés Corchero, Josep Maria Mestres or Àngel Alonso, with their staging. Previously, I trained as an actor at the Nancy Tuñón School. I am a director-playwright with a passion for physical-visual material. I am particularly interested in two spheres, the visual gag and the dialogue between the different physical-visual disciplines.
I travel the world to attend performances related to local cultures such as Kathakali in Kerala (India), Balinese dance theater in Bali (Indonesia) or Postmodern Theater in Berlin (Germany), etc.
I live this profession with passion, considering myself more a craftsman than an artist who has theater as a way of life.
