Transir de Rojo Telón


Transir is a game about transformation, change, life and death.

In the circus, as in everyday life, we put our lives on the line. We have nothing more certain than death. We have believed ourselves to be happy, unlimited and capable of controlling nature. Accepting our human condition, accepting that in the end we are going to die, that everything comes to an end and that not everything depends on us may allow us to think about the present, about what we are, what we feel and what we want.

Perhaps this will place us in what it would be like to live a fuller life.

Transir is the third project of Rojo Telón. It is the result of the creative process between 2022 and 2023, in which live music is added to the language of circus (aerial and vertical acrobatics), accompanied on this occasion by Marta Alonso Tejada as artistic director and Pablo Reboleiro as assistant director.

A light, humorous staging for the street and the theatre, which takes place between the four legs of a circus aerial structure.

You can see part of the creation process in this video.



Rojo Telón


In 2015 the matriarchy Rojo Telón was born, under the guise of a circus company, from the hand and heart of Ana Cuervas, Begoña Peñaranda and Maider Yabar; with the intention of occupying the resounding silence of women’s shows in the Basque Country.

Soy Ellas / Haiek naiz was our first action, directed by Agurtzane Intxaurraga. It was a creation that accompanied us for four years, during which we found our own language with which to transmit our experiences, doubts, longings and joys… through movement.

After touring fairs, festivals, squares and frontons with our message, in 2019 we decided to take a new step and a new creation: Nudo, joined by María Salmerón as a new member of the company.

And as there are no two without three (let them tell us) and one of our greatest pleasures is the creative process, in 2023 comes a new exploration: Transir. Where our shadow collaborator Xandra Arostegui takes the stage with us to create the sound universe of the show.

And we will continue to extend our vision of the circus, of theatre and of life as long as the heart holds out.
