Overview

Production

Two strangers whose paths never cross eventually slip into each other’s world through a mysterious and magical encounter. In this world of the unknown, they soar together in their dreams and sing the ode to love.

Created by the prize-winning Spanish troupe David Moreno Cia. & Cristina Calleja, Flotados is an otherworldly outdoor circus performance that will light up Parade Ground during Tai Kwun Circus Plays. Performing from a grand piano hanging at 8 meters high, two performers tell an enchanting love story through music, dance, acrobatics and video projections. So, take a step back and investigate the night sky, follow the performers’ elegant moves, and immerse yourself in a universe of dreams.

Let’s welcome Christmas with a unique and romantic ariel dance performance.

Concept, Creation and Performance

Concept, Creation and Performance 
Cristina Calleja is the creator, co-author and performer of the company.

Her inquisitiveness for the performing arts led her to study classical and contemporary dance at the Marienma Dance School in Valladolid and to study acting at the Valladolid Provincial Council Theatre School. She learnt the art of circus at the Charivari School of Circus (Madrid) and at the Moscow Circus School CAEC. She has worked with numerous theatre, dance and circus companies, and she has earned prestigious awards such as the Best Female Performance Award by the Castilla y León Union of Actors, the Delirios de Mujer Awards for her career, and various creation awards from the Valladolid Provincial Council. In 2017 she joined David Moreno. Together they discovered their own language to unfold their magical universe, where emotion becomes the protagonist in a shared work where music, movement and poetry are capable of transforming the eyes of those who see.

David Moreno holds a degree in Modern Music from the Catalonia College of Music (ESMUC).

Composer, pianist, actor, eclectic artist who seeks inspiration beyond music, in theatre, dance, cinema, and the plastic arts.

Since the 90s, David Moreno has shared both artistic projects and stage with renowned artists and has composed the soundtrack for many shows.

In 2008 he created his own artistic company, where his restlessness and creative capacity has gone a step further, managing to create a unique and recognizable language that has brought him great international recognition.

In 2017 he crossed his life, his art and his work with Cristina and together they formed David Moreno Cia & Cristina Calleja, today an international top-level creative tandem.
