International Solo Festival


Cine-Teatro Garrett, Sala de Ensaios (Rehearsal Room)


Extreme physical work, physical endurance work, strength, twists and contortions. Balance on hands. Spasmodic impulses, acrobatic explosions. THE FREE BODY beyond the possibilities of the human body. Work on "The Metamorphosis" by Franz Kafka.

Jakob, tortured and animalistic character. PRIMITIVE. Talks to the body to tell us its secret. Unadapted to our world, he laughs, suffers. He is nobody.


Jonathan Frau was born in Cagliari, Italy in October 1985. After obtaining his artistic diploma at the Academy of Bologna and 10 years of competitive artistic gymnastics, he moved to Madrid to study circus arts at the "Carampa" circus school. In France, he trains for three years at the circus academy "Le Lido" in Toulouse. He forms his own company "Oktobre" with Eva Ordonez and Yann Frisch. "Jakob", since its premiere in 2014, has toured the world. Currently, he is dedicated to creating a new circus and live music project within the "Oktobre" company.
