Tomás Kaulen Díaz
Tomás Kaulen Díaz is a self-taught circus artist. He trained at the Cuban National Circus School (ENA 2000-2001). In 2010, together with musician Alvaro Pacheco, they created Pacheco Haulen y Hnos circus company. They have produced several performances among which a versatile duet Circo de A’onde, the result of a first collaboration with l’Avant Courrier.
In 2017, Tomás created Circo Hechizo, a multidisciplinary platform which purpose is to research and blend circus with other performing arts.
Cine Circo challenges the memory of a digitalising world, reviving the historical analogies between circus and film through Liberto an eccentric character, now an usher, then a popcorn seller and a projectionist, slightly disorganized, and Estrella his mite clumsy assistant.Circo Hechizo rejuvenates the early stage of cinema, refering to emblematic film directors who have common forebears with clowns (Chaplin, Keaton…).
Cine Circo is a multiple-sections project:
-> the show
-> workshops: including a workshop “creating on Celluloid”
-> cinema: a screening time, within the set space turned into a touring cinema, to be scheduled in close relationship with the area or the organiser of the event
-> news / advertisement: a participative audiovisual creation included in the show and renewed for each new location.
