Pablo Volo

Stage director

Pablo Volo, director and trainer, is above all a polyglot artist, whose career path criss-crosses the circus, musical theatre, opera, and street theatre.

 

Italian-German, he trained mainly in Paris at the studio of Mime Corporel Dramatique in Belleville and at the FAI-AR (Formation Avancée Itinérante des Arts de la Rue). He founded the company Ex Voto, based in Marseille, with Manel Pons Romero.

 

Among their shows:
Ecce Hombrella, street theatre in a center for asylum seekers, inspired by Schubert's Winter Journey.
La Luna in un Giorno, show of five circus artists inspired by the poetry of Federico García Lorca.
Vivaldi in the sky, instrumental opera composed of a Baroque ensemble and three circus artists.

 

He has recently been the assistant to the director Benedetto Sicca for his production of Benjamin Britten's opera The Turn of the Screw presented at the Maggio Fiorentino.

With L’ Ensemble C Barré, he has just created the chamber opera El Niño based on poems by Federico García Lorca, with music by George Crumb and Frederic Pattar.
Also with L’Ensemble C Barré, he directed and coordinated the community theatre piece La Barraca, an ambulatory opera.

 

Pablo Volo regularly teaches corporal drama classes, individual courses and provides coaching. He is co-founder of the European network Circonnection.
He also manages the promotion of Prodig’Art, a laboratory dedicated to the mediation and diffusion of ‘art music’.

 

His upcoming project will be to prepare the staging for the baroque ensemble Les Musiciens de St Julien, a musical show for young audiences.
With the composer Jean Christophe Marti he will stage the clown Cathrine Germain in the Oratorio Buffo Yunus with the choeur de Madrigal in Toulon.
