Here are a selections of projects I’ve been involved in creating specifically for young people
URBAN by Circolombia
World tour 2011-2012
Puppets, Merchandise and Company assistant
URBAN is a freestyle portrait of a society, incorporating both joy and violence, where dance and music are the safety valves of everyday life. It features the best of the Colombian national circus school Circo Para Todos. A true narrative of the streets of Cali, URBAN is based on the lives of the young cast; telling the world what its like in their reality, through their eyes, ears, and voices.
URBAN is a tale of confrontation and redemption, of gangs and individual freedom, of poetics and cruelty. Infused with live reggaeton and volcanic, wild, but perfectly mastered acrobatics, it shows that with passion and dedication you really can touch the stars.
