CAN YOU SEE THROUGH YOUT NOSE?
Circo Ciego (Blind Circus) was a project created by soundmixer and artist Olga Cuéllar (RIP), in close collaboration with Sensorama.
The project consisted in a multi-sensorial performance that stimulated the public’s experimentation through their senses. Combining coloured light, audio effects, vibrations, sensations and scents they created a journey where people have their chance to perceive and relate their surrounding using all their senses.
My roll in Circo Ciego consisted basically in assist Cuellar in the production of the performance “Causa en Cauce” in Guadalajara. I travelled to Mexico City and together with Olga wrote a project plan that could be presented in my University where we wanted to make the first presentation during the “Communication Congress”.
The project got accepted and my roll took a new form, and became production manager and took care of all the things needed to arrange the installations in order to present “Causa en Cause”. People got very interested for the project and Circo Ciego got after this presentation a new season at our university and also a presentation at El Trompo (children’s museum in Guadalajara) in year 2001.
Working with Circo Ciego opened for me not only a new perspective in production, but also a window to the world where you can explore with all your senses. I got so inspired by this project that I wrote my thesis about “ The manifestation of non verbal communication processes during the performance Causa en Cause”. All what I learned during this process I keep on applying in my actual projects and coaching.
