Zen del Sur project was born from the union of two artists, Carlos López and Antonio Vargas with a solid Circus and Dance professional background. They both decided to merge their personal pathways and experience to develop an artistic proposal in order to integrate the fusion of different arts forms like Acrobatic Dance, Music and Circus.

Zen del Sur emerges from a common and deep research work between dancers, acrobats, contemporary musicians and designers who focused on the aim developing a creative dialogue between sound and movement, chasing emotion. The company is committed to a form of learning where improvising and exploring new languages are crucial during the whole creative process. The multitalented character of its artists should be highlighted, as well as their abilities to generate expectation and to convey a particular sensitivity through body control and expressivity, merged with music. This is indeed reflected in their first production, Heian.

The primary objective of Zen del Sur is to move the audience through the integration of several Arts disciplines, enabling the audience to participate on the ideas and feeling shown in the stage.

“The word Zen can be defined as complete attention to the movement in the present. A lived experience, a non-thought one. Something similar happens on stage, a kind of meditation where artists and audience converge towards a common emotional state, where the mind is released and we feel a sense of happiness invading us”. Carlos López.
