Bruno Martín Gagliardini was born in the Catalinas Sur neighborhood (La Boca, Buenos Aires, Argentina) on November 16, 1979. Being born in this neighborhood is not a minor detail in his biography. From 1995 to 2003, he was part of the Catalinas Sur Theater Group, a community-based artistic project that combines high artistic quality with the depth of social issues through a dynamic of collective work. This was his training ground in various scenic techniques (circus, theater, clown, commedia dell'arte, puppets, murga), and above all, his space for shaping the ways of thinking and feeling about art.
Starting in 1999, he actively dedicated himself to the production, direction, and performance of street shows, combining various artistic languages for the general public. He specialized in diabolo play and in constructing collective stories based on this element. The intersection of languages is complemented by science, a result of the inheritance from his physicist parents, and poetic prose stemming from travels and a desire to share lived experiences.
Over the years, with his performances, he participated in more than two hundred and fifty circus and street performance festivals, mainly in Europe and South America. His imprint is the combination of circus, music, physics, poetry, and storytelling in a performative act aimed at the diversity of street inhabitants. The driving force behind all his creations is art as a generator of possibilities and a social transformer.
At the end of 2014, he published his first book called "Poesía Cirquera," which is a compilation of his own stories inspired by fifteen years of adventures on the streets and stages of the world. He has also been and continues to be a teacher in social circus projects, a coach in creative processes, and a director of circus shows. In the year 2024, he celebrates his first 25 years as a street artist.
