Max Calaf Seve is a contemporary circus artist, specialising in trampoline acrobatics, object manipulation and physical theatre.

He creates indoor and outdoor performances, challenging himself to obliterate the boundaries of what is possible on the trampoline. His unique performance aesthetic alerts us to the trampolines infinite possibilities and infinite stories that it can articulate; tangible, physical, emotional, artistic:

'There is an explosion upwards, a moment of suspension in the air where you are weightless, ecstatic free. But the higher the jump the greater the fall. The trampoline can be a monster.'
Max Calaf Sevé

Max's work is personal and particular. His desire to collaborate with artists from other worlds, exploring other disciplines whilst pursuing his own line of enquiry is powerful. Mining his own experience, in collaboration with others, Max creates work that is unexpected and delightful.

His relentless need to know what might be possible keeps Max's work fresh; ensures it is relevant, takes him into new territories, evolves new vocabularies and reconfigures familiar forms into the new. Max is a think erand a storyteller.
