Joaquin Barral


  • Corde lisse,


It is at the crossroads between visual and movement that Joaquin finds his anchor. Before starting his passage through the National Circus School, he studied four years of industrial design at the University UDELAR in Uruguay, influencing his way of creating. During his time at the school, Joaquin affirmed his passion for dance and its mixture with acrobatics, circus and the different possible dramaturgies that challenge the creation in these fields.


What does the NCS represent for you?

At the beginning, the School represented for me an accomplishment coming from so far away, today it represents a hub of connections and a great asset that, I’m sure, will enable me to open the doors of the places I’m aiming for by applying everything I’ve experienced during this period.


What is your favorite memory of the NCS?

It’s hard to pinpoint one memory as “the best”, as the School seems to go by so quickly that everything is a bit of a blur. However, I can say that I cherish and hold close many fond memories with my main coaches Sarah, Véronique and Adrian.
