Vaiven Circo is a recently created company, born in 2008 when Raquel Pretel met Miguel Angel Moreno in the Catalan company Els Comediants. She was part of the company as a dancer, while he was a circus performer. They decide to start working together and share their knowledges about circus and dance. They produce their first show,”La felicidad en un dos por dos” (Happiness in a 2 x 2 flat), that merge both performing arts. They performed it more than 100 times.
In 2009 two acrobats joined the cast, Chema Martin and Emilio Lopez Arquillo, and they started to work on their second performance: “Cayuco”. In this show also participated Ivan Monje, composer and musician, and Marta Sitjà, direction assistant, clown and live musician.
“Do Not Disturb”, their last work, was premiered in December 2011. Since then the company is always in movement and nurturing creativity.
The company visited some of the most important festivals in Spain and Europe like Fira de Cirq de Catalunya TRAPEZI in Reus, CIRCADA in Seville, the El Ejido Theatre Festival, the Festival Puerta del Mediterráneo, Festival MOBA, Villareal Street Theatre Festival, Ane Brz Festival in Ljibljana (Slovenia), Festimome (Fr), Bastid Art (Fr), Festival Tra Terra e Mare à Latissana (It), Festival de Théâtre in Marrakech, LOST theatre in London (UK), Kalearte in Vitoria, Kalealdia in Bilbao, Umore Azoka in Leioa, Festival Salamanca, Fiestas del Pilar in Zaragoza, 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.
