Born in Barcelona, Blaï Mateu Trias grows up in a family immersed in the catalan post-Franco artistic trends. With the company Tortell Poltrona, he takes part in the first expeditions of Clowns Without Borders. He trains in the circus arts in France (National school for the circus arts of Chatellerault, ENCR of Rosny-sous-Bois, CNAC in Châlons-en-Champagne) where he works with different artists namely Heddy Maalem, Benat Achiary, Philippe Decouflé, Laurence Mayor, Eugène Durif, Francesca Lattuada. Also a writer and a performer in all the shows of Baro d’evel, he starts a solo experience in 2006 with Ï in which he questions circus in its form and confronts it to a historic and dramatic subject. After the collective experience and since 2006 he has been at the head of the company with Camille Decourtye and has conceived the shows Le Sort du dedans, Mazùt, Bestias and the diptych Là, sur la Falaise.
