LA MALETA DELS ESPECTACLES

From 2008, we distribute shows from Catalan companies of circus, puppet and street theatre addressed to all audiences. Therefore, we project ahead their shows both national and internationally, willing to professionalise performing arts.

Our main goal is to accompany the companies in order to help artists to focus on their own job and create high quality artistic works with a national and international scope. Growing up together we can go further.

Meanwhile this process, we take care of management and professional relationship among culture programmers, paying always attention to offer a human, one-to-one and close treatment without forgetting professionalism and efficiency. We like open, empathetic and long-lasting relationships.
