Pacheco Kaulen y Hnos was founded in 2009 with the production of the show Circo de A’onde. The company’s artistic research relies upon the fusion between circus arts and music leading to unconventional productions.

The company has benefited from the support of the Chilean Council for Culture for itinerant, research or creative projects.
