Cia. Lucas Escobedo

The Lucas Escobedo Company was born in 2011 after the premiere of its first solo 

creation, Boiiiing. Its main promoter is Lucas, a multidisciplinary artist from Alicante that draws his work from both circus and juggling world, and theatre, specially mask, puppet and object theatre.

Lucas Escobedo begins his artistic training with Andrés Hernández and Mar Navarro  (direct disciple of Jacques Lecoq). He extends his training with different teachers (Román y Cía, Moshe Kohen, Patricia Kraus, Jesús Jara, Vasily Protsenko, Christian Atanasiu, Sean Gandini, Kati Ylä-Hokkala, Maksim Komaro, Lucas Ronga, Francisco Macià) and continues his apprenticeship in the Institut del Teatre of Barcelona, specialising in Interpretation and Visual Theatre.

His professional beginning led him to work with different companies such as Tragaleguas Teatro, Circus of Horrors, Teatro Circo Price, Román y Cía, La Société de la Mouffette,  The Debacle and NueveunoCirco. He has also participated in several audiovisual projects such as El Conciertazo on TVE, Babaclub on Canal 9, Io Don Giovani by Carlos Saura, Seven Pets for Disney Channel and El Secreto de Puente Viejo of Boomerang TV.

Having adquired this professional experience, in 2013, he decided to start a new period with the creation of a show of own authorship, Room 801, which was nominated for Best Show by the Performing Arts of Valencia Awards in 2018, and with which he has worked both nationally and inernationally in some of the main festivals and venues.

He also developed an interest in stage direction and worked with different professional companies such as Cía Aérea, La Finestra Nou Circ, Cía Acrobacia Mínima or La Trócola Circ among others. With this last company, with their last production Emportats, they received Best Show of the FETEN Nights Award in the FETEN Awards 2018, Best Circus Show Award in the Performing Arts of Valencia Awards 2018, and they were candidates to Best Stand-Out Show Award in the MAX Awards of Performing Arts 2019.

In the actual period, in 2018, he received the task of staging the new production of the Escalante Theater of Valencia: YOLO. The premiere was in November that year in the Martin i Soler theater in Palau de les Arts of Valencia, and won Best Big Format Show Award and Best Sound Space Award in the FETEN Awards. At the same time, YOLO has been classified as a Recommended Show in the Spanish Theatre Network Catalogue. At this moment, YOLO has a tour for 2019-2020 prepared, in venues such as Cultura Nova Festival in Netherlands, Circus Price Theater in Madrid or the Principal Theaters of Valencia and Alicante, among others.

To conclude, Lucas received the assignement of directing the Gala of the Performing Arts of Valencia Awards 2019 by the Valencian Institute of Culture.
