We are willing to continue learning while learning to de-form
Since 1987 we have been accumulating Escarlatas, experiences and occurrences that we want to share and make them travel through being passed on.
Both young and old. the time to learn is always, and we are willing to continue learning while learning to de-form ourselves.
We offer our services to all those curious and eager to share and transform this world. That’s why we’re here, so as to not have to settle for we’re given.
We push the game
Passing it on
Accompanying and feeling
apprentices – second year artists – Académie Fratellini – La Plaine Saint Denis – France 2018
Idea and direction: escarlata
Show performed in the Grand chapiteau of the Académie Fratellini during the Christmas period 2018 with school sessions and sessions for the general public.
A tribute to the cleaning staff who turn into superheroes and do The Impossible. From these superheroes we have woven a dramaturgy to fly with mythology and defy universal laws.Read more
Our desire is to give wings to young learners, to give them a taste for creation by giving them carte blanche to write their ideas and desires. This is a way of weaving utopias, challenging a common but unknown term for most mortals: sky, air. And once there, we dance!Close
Circus aperitif- Fratellini Academy– 1st year apprentices 2018
Idea and direction: Jordi Aspa
Invite the air to dance …
Matter and character, imaginary and real-life characters that will awaken in our imagination, that will take us on a journey into the inner caverns of adventure and universal laws. The props speak of their direct resistance to the laws of nature by making their music, or simply by their presence, telling us tales about their history and about ours, as humans.

SCINTILLES DEI BALLON
students Flic School – Turin – Italy 2015
Idea and direction: escarlata
What impresses us most about Turin are its contrasts. The plain surrounded by the stunning Alps. The wealthy bourgeois city and its flea market “le Ballon“, where anarchy reigns for one day a week. The beauty that comes from such a market cannot be described in words; it must enter through the pores of the skin. This is the intention; to pay homage to all those who make this alternative life possible, this life which is not capitalistic, but which is bathed in capitalism. The Circus for us encompasses this freedom, this well-interpreted anarchy. Beauty and poetry together.
We want the second-year students of the Flic Circus School to perform what they have in hand, a gem! The material used sometimes has the charm of having a life of its own; each element, each object present in the market ofle Ballon, is a small story. It is these stories that we will tell them, full of eddies, balances, waterfalls, acrobatics, juggling… We sell nothing but our sincerity and simplicity at the price of smiles and hugs. Matter is a means, but not our end. Our goal is to share the invisible, the impalpable. That which makes the heartbeat.
Let’s see if we manage it ….

Capitalism, make them laugh
Multidisciplinary show – Collaboration as circus specialists in the Theatre Research Workshop – 2013
Direction: Andrés Lima
Author Juan Cabestany
Capitalism, make them laugh is an artistic proposal that arises from research workshops where different artists, thinkers, economists and professionals made a serious and conscientious analysis of our society and the excesses of capitalism. That’s why we’ve always talked about theatrical experience and not so much about spectacle …
Numerous people have taken part in this research process, including journalists (Jon Sistiaga, Olga Rodríguez …), economists (Vicenç Navarro, Juan Antonio Jimeno …), lawyers and professors (Joan Garcés, Juan Carlos Monedero …), clowns (Antón valen, Javier Rey …) choreographers, (Sol Picó, Núria Legarda …), circus professionals (Escarlata Circus, Alba Sarraute …) authors (Fermín Cabal, Juan Cavestany , Marc Rosich, Alfredo Sanzol …), directors (Alex Ollé, Miquel de l’Arc, Alfredo Sanzol …), producers and managers (Pere Pinyol, Joseba Gil, Maria Valls …), assistant directors Laura Galán, Laura Tajada …) and of course actors and actresses (Aitana Sánchez Gijón, Carmen Machi, Pedro Casablanca, Alberto San Juan, Luis Bermejo, Raúl Arévalo, Silvia Marsó, Guillermo Toledo, Fernando Tejero, Juan Diego Botto, Pepón Nieto, Rulo Pardo …).Close
SEDERSI O NON SEDERSI
Flic School –Torino– 2nd year students – 2012
Idea and direction – Jordi Aspa
Scenography – Roberta Scamuzzi
End-of-year show for students who have attended the School’s professional course every day for two years. The common thread chosen by the director for the show “SEDERSI O NON SEDERSI” is the chair. The Catalan artist Jordi Aspa explains the title / theme of the performance as follows: “When what matters is to have a place in life; when all that is certain satisfies us; when we are all satisfied, we bring you … “ SEDERSI O NON SEDERSI. The public and the students will unite in the demand for the right to get a place in life, in the show; some as spectators, others as evolving artists. But be careful … our place is ephemeral just like our lives”. (Jordi Aspa)Read more
