Vaivén Circo

 Vaivén Circo is born in 2008 when Raquel Pretel, dancer, met Miguel Angel Moreno, circus artist, in the Catalan company Els Comediants. Since then, the company is constantly researching new forms by combining circus, dance and physical theatre with the idea of reaching high level of technical skills while telling a story. In 2009 two acrobats joined the cast, Chema Martin and Emilio Lopez Arquillo, and they started to work on their second production: “Cayuco”. In this show also participated Ivan Monje, composer and musician, and Marta Sitjà, direction assistant, clown and live musician. In 2011, “Do Not Disturb” was premiered and is still touring today, reaching nearly 400 performances, After “Des-Hábitat”, which was premiered in March 2015, Vaivén Circo has just premiered a new show called “Esencial”, inspired by the famous children’s toy Waldorf’s Rainbow. The company is touring with both “Do Not Disturb” and “Esencial” at the moment. Vaivén Circo visited some of the most important festivals in Spain and Europe like Fira de Cirq de Catalunya TRAPEZI in Reus, Fira Tarrega, CIRCADA in Seville, Festival MOBA, Ane Brz Festival in Ljubljana (Slovenia), Chalon dand la Rue (Fr), Festimome (Fr), Festival Parades in Nanterre (Fr), Festival Au Bonheur des Momes (Fr), Festival Tra Terra e Mare à Latissana (It), Festival de Théâtre in Marrakech, Greenwich Children’s Theatre Festival in London (UK), Ageas Salisbury (UK), Festival Out There (UK), Brugges Plus and Gente (Belgium), Festival Tete a Tete in Rastatt (De), Kleines Fest in Hannover (De), Kulturboerse in Freiburg (De), Festival Panoptikum (De), Cenas da Rua (Pt), International Children’s Festival Sibenik (Croatia), Circo Price in Madrid… And many more with a special mention to Shizuoka (Jp), for the World Cup of Street Theatre Artists in Daidogei, as special guest, and more recently, one week at BAM in Brooklyn, New York.
