Direction and creation
Share, grow and learn together.
We offer support from the time the seed is fertilized until it bears fruit.
By this we mean that we like to participate from the moment the artist feels pregnant with an idea or needs us to help him fertilize an embryo that has barely taken shape and nurture it throughout the time of growth until the moment when we offer it publicly in the form of a show or some other form of expression.
Our aim is to extract the best from each idea artistically, preserving the essence of the project.
To nurture, grow and learn together.

Circ Cric 2021
Direction: Jordi Aspa and Tortell Poltrona
7 clowns are the conductors of a show that, with sensitivity and humour, challenges the eternal human challenges of balance, gravity and common sense.
A piece of contemporary theatre, well researched and full of scenic poetry. A performance that is direct, referential, and an ambassador of our culture that captivates young and old.
Welcome to this music box capable of working miracles…
Here the objects do not fall, you can fly, turn upside down in the air, share the risk, laugh until your eyes water, dance without hindrance to the sound of your music

Cia Des-equilibrats – 2020
Co-author and director- Jordi Aspa
Find new paths through research and reflection, and deconstruct by acting out of the desire to question what, how and why; the Imbalance that is necessary to get out of the comfort zone, to transform what already exists and create something new; to put risk at the service of art; to understand that we are mere story tellers with no desire to be the protagonists of any story; the intention is to provoke an Aürt.Read more
All of this is what inspires me to put myself, with all my senses and knowledge, at the forefront of this project.
To speak of the circus is to write in space and play with the laws of nature while respecting it; it’s a way to re-discover children’s play. We learn to play and try not to stop doing it day and night, with our eyes closed or open. With the wisdom of listening to the silence and being carried away by imbalance, we will be able to savour our common goal: to disappear behind the smokescreen of the poetry of the elements.
Shapes are created before our eyes and nothing will be what it seems. The desire to change our world is the driving force behind us and is the spirit of Aürt.

Rhum and co – 2018
Direction: Jordi Aspa
Barcelona City Circus Award, 2018 from the company Rhum & Co, for having created a paradigmatic piece that marks the beginning of a new stage in the research and renewal of the universe of the clown, providing new layers of artistic value and thought, with its very own unique flavour and expression.
The director says …
The clown seeks and almost always finds fissures in the realm of reason. The wiseman trembles when he laughs. Because often the life of man, the subject of laughter, is also made of sadness, as Baudelaire said.
Clowns are able to make numbers out of letters, and dress up while being completely naked; freedom is their prison.
We invite you to travel with us and reflect on the figure of the clown with a musical collage filled with original performances and some classics, full of acidity, sweetness or spiciness, flavours to awaken the instinct of laughter.
Don’t be surprised at anything; maybe your shoes will grow large; or you may see yourself mirrored on the track as if clowns have kidnapped your heart. And you might realize that “laughing” is not just a word, it is something deeper; the milestones that sustain it are endless.
We don’t like to laugh at anyone but with everyone.
…because laughter heals almost everything!

Circus company”eia” – 2016
Co-author and Direction: Jordi Aspa
MAX Award 2017 for Best New Show
Some small structures, a trampoline, a scale, and four men…
Four acrobats who observe, study, collide, throw themselves at each other, and thus transport us into their world of metaphor and nonsense: encounters, rivalries, feats, falls, seizures of power, seduction, manipulations; an “inlay” made up of fragments of life which form a mirror reflecting human relationships.
A circus in constant motion; a powerful, poetic and fun show, and a moment which awakens our affection for that strange beast, the human being.
Company En Diciembre – 2015
Direction: Bet Miralta
Purpusii talks about the meeting of two strange beings and how they travel to their particular universe to achieve their goal. But nobody said it would be easy. The difficulty of understanding the other, the struggle to create, and the difficulty in negotiating being on the same team while at the same time being rivals. The trouble with wanting the same thing but being unable to share it. In short, Purpusii brings to the fore the evolving love between two people.
F.A.I.R – Unlikely Phenomena Rescued from Anonymity
119th Winter Circus – Ateneu de 9Barris – 2014
Direction and co-authorship: Jordi Aspa
Award for best circus show Fetén 2016
Circus artists are like monsters who show us their savoir faire when they undo the illusion of the impossible by creating the illusion of the possible in front of us.Read more
Our F.A.I.R has been nourished by these phenomena. It is a fair full of circus and full of wonders. Wonders born of everyday life and transformed into stars for a few moments, moments of glory, energy and an explosion of poetry.
So our F.A.I.R also belongs to the universe of the ephemeral and the provisional, which encourages us to make the most of the passing moment. Coming from the afterlife, the entire F.A.I.R invites you on their journey.
You got it: just pack your bags and we’ll take you there!
Circus company “eia” – 2010
Direction and co-writing: Jordi Aspa
City of Barcelona Award 2011 – Circus Category,
“for the risk assumed in circus research and innovation.”
TheWidowStanton – best circus show of 2020
With its world of petty arguments and its games of hide and seek, Capas transports us to a family environment, full of warm and festive encounters.Read more
The circus arts are mixed with live music and dance in this show, which is full of poetry and humour.
A giant, closet at the centre of the stage unfolds, revealing the many layers within… all to the beat of drums and Italian chants.
Music and movement set the tone, which is alternately energetic, sweet and ironic. The artists explore a variety of rhythms and the expressive potential of technical gesture.
Acrobatic feats of balance, deadlifts and moving human pyramids reveal many ways in which we can explore the layers that make up personality and society, while offering different ways of reading the show.
A soccer ball, a rope, white sheets or the entrails of the closet are some of the elements that are transformed into a pretext and fulcrum of the stage and acrobatic action.
Deambulants company – 2004
Direction: Bet Miralta
ALT is a multidisciplinary show which premiered at the Tàrrega Stree Theatre Featival, and which has been a success with audiences and critics at various national and international festivals. ALT also has live music by the Fireluche Orchestra. ALT is an invitation to enter a unique world, where the law of gravity does not exist, where spaces are open and rules are broken. And yet, the four characters who inhabit this world live in a magical and unique version of everyday life.
The giant of the 7 seas
Barcelona Cultural Forum 2004.
Original idea and direction: Jordi Aspa
When Arutairc, a 12-foot-tall creature manipulated by 10 machinists, was asleep, everything seemed calm, but his dreams moved him when he realized how humans had damaged the sea.
High-flying trapeze artists, motorized acrobats, aerial dancers, comedians and musicians, brought to life the whole set with their dance, using a complex network of mechanical and hydraulic tools.
Seen by a million viewers during the period from May to September 2004.
