Since the creation of her first company, Fet a mà company and her show CRU Marta Torrents searches an original and strong physical language. CRU was telling a story about human relationships in a sharp and bright style. It was all in the actors faces, their bodies serving to extend the emotion towards fantastic nonsense. as if, just for a moment, one would have the privilege to look inside or through someone else. Her new show BRUT is created on this basis of commitment. She claims an intuitive approach of creation which means spontaneous and connected with what we are, theoretically and at the present moment. « I do not care for virtuosity but rather for truth, humanity, beauty in simplicity, in freedom.»
Spanish actress and acrobatic performer linving in Toulouse (F), she comes from the world of dance. Then she trained in Barcelona circus school and Toulouse circus school Le Lido.

She creates her own langage a circus cleared of artifices, immediate, where the highlighted body speaks for itself, granting as much attention to the technicity as to the dramaturgy. For her, circus is a rough, raw art, affecting all sensibilities. Brut is her first personal project as a director.
