" Carlos’ research has led him to new, innovative ways of looking at, constructing and directing theatre. He makes theatre that is three dimensional, bringing depth, perspective and the geometry of daily life to theatre. This creates what could be called a kind of spatial dramaturgy - not with set design, but with the moulding and manipulation of empty space. Inspiring, generous and mischievous! "

When I saw Carlos’ work I was having the absolute conviction that this has to be the future of Opera singing.“

 - Íride Martínez - Soprano

" He has discovered ways to make the life within each character not only amuse and engage the audience, but also grab them by the throat and jerk them into the world on stage and, by extension, the world we live in."
