JÚLIA FARRERO PUIG
Born in Lleida, I began my circus training in Barcelona with teachers specialized in aerial techniques. I furthered my training in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in different spaces and schools, where I worked on dance, aerial and other circus techniques, specializing in the fixed trapeze.
In 2011, I studied at the circus school Rogelio Rivel in Barcelona, again specializing in the fixed trapeze.
I continued my training in Toulouse, France, with artists such as Elodie Doñaque, Chloé Moglia from the company Rhizome, Cohdi Harrell, Madlena Laine, among others…
Interested in dance and movement, I searched for my own physical language, combining technique with body expression. This led me to create my trapeze act, which I have performed in different festivals and cabarets in France, Catalonia, and Spain.
I currently work as a trapeze artist in the theatre company Markeliñe in the Basque Country, and collaborate with the French company L’Elolienne in their show Flux Tendu.
I am licensed in Physiotherapy and I have trained in techniques of lower extremity dysfunctions, myotensive techniques for the spine and pelvis, myofascial techniques, as well as visceral and cranioscral therapy.
In a rustic context and with the Pyrenean tradition of fallas as a source of inspiration, a piece emerges between the movement and the trapeze (or its symbolism) through a simple and visual language.
A show where the tradition and the contemporary coexist, the rustic and the most delicate, and that invites the audience to be part of this ritual.
Through the body and the wood I speak of my memories, of me, of my godfather and of those people with wrinkled hands and feet rooted in the earth.
A scenario under construction where everything is transformed and where through the imaginary they glimpse the contradictions of the human being
