Franco-Spanish aerialist Nacho Flores takes his balancing act off of the tight rope to create a whole new kind of circus. Watch with bated breath as he climbs impossible stacks of teetering wooden blocks that rise like mountains and topple like dominoes. Follow him on a surreal adventure through a poetic, shape-shifting landscape where he must battle gravity, befriend ordinary objects and uncover dreams.

All ages

As part of Circus Now


Originally from Madrid, Nacho Flores discovered circus in Amsterdam, while living there for two years. He grew weary of juggling numbers on a computer and decided to study at the Carampa Circus School and the Navarro Mar Lecopi School of Theatre. Upon graduation, he met the well-known high-wire artist Ernesto Terri and traveled to Buenos Aires to study with him. Flores later honed his skills at the Moscow Circus and at Le Lido in Toulouse, France, ultimately inventing his own form: balancing on wooden cubes.


Tesseract is a project of Studio/PACT, an initiative co-created by La Grainerie and Le Lido (Center for Circus Arts) located in Toulouse, France. The project is supported by Institut français / Mairie de Toulouse and the French region Occitanie Pyrénées-Méditerranée.
