Miguel Ángel Martín, founder of the company, wanted to fly, to break the limits of art, to break the rules, and to look at the sky. The beginning of these stories came from the artistic anger for expressing worlds which were unknown until the moment. Impressive and peculiar creations have gone across the world all these years.
From the day of its creation, the company enlarges the emotions of the public on its performances and events which are custom made by the clients. As it has been already made for the magical ‘’Fantasy in Katara’’ in Doha, Qatar, the fantastic campaign for Mall Plaza in Chile or for emotive theatre performances like Buiten Gewoon in Doetinchem, Netherlands, between hundreds of other worldwide events.
All the stories we have told, and all the stories that are yet to come, show our capacity to reach to the emotions of people creating unforgettable moments. Miguel Ángel Martín’s creativity, work and technique are focused on creating giant and mobile sculptures and puppets using them as the main characters of an endless number of stories capable of going across every corner in the world and making millions of people take part in them. Europe, Asia, America and Africa have been place to our big stories. Experiences like Burning Man in USA, Dubai Shopping Festival in the Arab Emirates, Manufaktura in Poland, Mall Wanda in China or the parade of the Three Wise Men in Madrid, between many others… are the result of a work dedicated to create magical narrations.
The art of Carros de Foc has fascinated a huge fusion of cultures thanks to the language of emotions, which has no borders.
