A very intense and delicate work, focused on the interaction with the public, with disciplines such as the manipulation of objects, pantomime or the balances that Thelmo uses as a tool to improvise situations, create games, share moments, project emotions. Inspired by great classic Clowns from Grock to Buster Keaton, and transformed by the influence of modern times ... see his instagram  @thelmoparole

Director with his partner Alejandra Oviedo of one of the most prominent circus companies in Madrid, the company Ale Hop and possibly one of the precursors of the New Spanish Circus back in the 80's. Churry Silva celebrates 35 years of professional career dedicated to the circus, street arts, imaginary theater and especially the world of "Clown", serving as director for his own company and signing the direction, advice and external vision of multiple projects of circus and clowns in Spain. 

Churry Silva continues with his company participating in countless international festivals, shows of his own production, events, international galas and circus and theater projects and fighting day by day for the authentic "Clowns" of trade and heart, to dignify this beautiful profession that as he says, in many cases is used as an easy resource to pass the time.
