THE COMPANY

TAL COM SÓC is the cornerstone of a project with style, charecterized by a serious humor, as we prefer to call it. Through it the perehosta company pretends to show his view of the world and of those characters that inhabit it from a humorous perspective in order to highlight the absurd aspects of everyday life.

Starting with the reasearch of this clown, his universe evolves to the show at OUT! – which was presented at the Theatrical Fair of Tarrega, Perpignan Festivals, Seville Fest, Cos de Reus, among other festivals and theaters -.

With the street production of POSTAL EXPRESS, directed by Sophie Bortwich with the collaboration of Pierre Pilatte, he plays with imagery and simpleness. He uses these two former elements as resources to explain everyday reality and interact with it, seeking to grasp truths and smiles . .

Highlighting the humour’s research and investigation, he presented PÀJARU l’any 2012 in 2012 – a co-production with El Canal, and released by Temporada Alta 2012 -. Essentially, a visual show where the clown plays and creates images that project ourselves from the simpleness and emotionalism that describes us as human beings.

Let us be seduced by these characters and their worlds … the clown’s ones.

The research of this daily clown is the manner the company has undertaken, in order to explain its particular vision of the world through human gestures and behaviour.
Facing isolation and loneliness, as main features of our times, we are committed to discover optimism and humor hidden in the routine’s boredom.
