The Company

CIRCUS, THEATRE AND HUMOUR WITH A LOT OF LOVE

“We feel that humour and laughter are one of the best abilities that human beings possess, one of the smartest ways to communicate and perhaps a good healing method. That is why it is our passion and continuous challenge. Our greatest pleasure on stage is to hear the audience laugh out loud”

PAKIPAYA COMPANY

The PakiPaya Company was born in 2008 from the meeting between Noemí Díaz and Adrià Mascarell who make their love their profession and their reason for living.

We are founders, directors, producers, creators and interpreters. They both combine their artistic passion for circus, theatre and humour, creating their own style, where circus technique serves theatrical dramaturgy.

Explorers of laughter and emotion, we seek interaction with the public to make them vibrate with magic and illusion. We want to activate imagination, arouse the curiosity of the spectator through surprises and humour. We use theatre as a means of action, a humanistic game that makes us enjoy being ourselves and also many others, allows us to observe ourselves, like standing in front of a mirror, and to explore life.

We create multidisciplinary shows specialized in aerial cradle and perform all-audience shows where different readings are possible, whether it be adults or kids.

We are continuously learning and searching for new universes and new challenges, where human relationships nourish and enrich our shows.
