Trajectory

Los Escultores del Aire premiered as a company in January 2014 with the show La Leyenda del Fauno & El viaje. At that time, known as Mai Rojas and Los Escultores del Aire given the solo career that their artistic director carried behind his back.

With this one-man show, the company has traveled the world, winning several awards, and hanging several medals such as having crowned Broadway or being the closing show in Dallas next to the mythical Odín Theater by Eugenio Barba.

That same year, Mai Rojas was hired again by Cirque du Soleil to play its star character (El Fauno) in the Scalada Mater Natura show, under the artistic direction of the renowned French choreographer Stephane Boko.

The year 2014 was also the premiere of his second show: Game Over with a cast of 4 actors and a pianist. It was from this montage that Matías Muñoz sealed his continuous participation as a stable composer of the company in all his shows.

In 2015 they premiered in Colombia their third show Cada recuerdo tiene su canción (Every Memory has its song), and with three shows in its repertoire the company establishes a 3-year relationship with the network of civic centers in Barcelona to bring physical theater closer to the popular public through its shows.

Together with the pop singer Ari Ann Wire they present their debut album Mindnight Songs in the mythical Luz de Gas, opening the way to a path that would lead them to collaborate in special events where their aesthetics and strength would mark and define their identity stamp.

From these alliances, Tuberías was born in 2016, a co-production with the Todozancos circus company. With this show they will tour the Spanish geography for 2 years within the National Theater Network, being part of the distribution catalog of the prestigious Pentación Espectáculos lead by Jesús Cimarro.

In 2018, together with the Los Despiertos Costa Rica Artistic Community, he created the Embrujarte consortium to annually shape an international festival of performing arts in Costa Rica. In the same year, the company’s expectations are exceeded and the name changes to Los Escultores del Aire / Physical Theater. It was decided to expand the group and open a public call for what would be their fifth show: La Caja (The Box), premiered in Poland that same year on a tour that would include New York, New Jersey, Barcelona and Costa Rica.

After receiving more than 250 applications, Los Escultores del Aire created their stable cast with which they currently carry out research and teaching work.

In 2019 they became the resident company of the Nau Ivanow, a public institution dedicated to the promotion and development of theater in Barcelona. It is together with them that they manage to shape their most daring projects.

In 2020, during the pandemic, they are looking for a way to give a creative turn to the situation, finding in the limitation an opportunity to reinvent themselves and they start something that they know how to do very well: teach.

They create 4 online workshops:

They also leave a virtual record on their Vimeo channel in the form of tutorials and master classes related to the arts of movement.

In 2021 they enter the small screen with a television miniseries: La Alquimia del Cuerpo (The Alchemy of the Body).

A miniseries of 3 chapters of 25 minutes each for the cultural streaming platform LifemediaGo. A fictionalized tutorial on the working alchemy of Los Escultores del Aire.
