The circus encapsulates everything: risk, constant surprise, tumbling, laughing at everything through fear of emptiness, the wholeness of tears and the noise of the audience. The noise that answers the questions about your life, your very existential experience in this trade which has chosen us. “And for my next trick´ is a phrase wrapped in daring and provocation in our imaginations, less death leap than epicentre of the risk entailed in all creative work. Escarlata Circus seeks neither safety nets, nor marks, nor trends, nor labels.
Mechanical movements based on natural models, articulated beasts that surprise due to their natural quality and give off a feeling of life that contrasts with the materials used to make them. The group encourages visitors to engage with their installations through sensors that interact with the animals, creating a human-machine language. Entertainment and fun in an atmosphere infused with science fiction and surprises due to the emotions generated. These are the key goals for this company as its members create unique organic movements.

From the start, the company pursued a project of research and search for their own style, in which circus techniques are at the service of dramatic interplay.
