Felipe Ortiz is a founding memeber of La Gata Circo and Picnic Impro in Bogotá, Colombia. Besides studying Clown and Buffon in Paris, he has also started working in improvisation and acrobatics early on. In his artistic work, he combines elements from these influences: Movement, Physicality, Storytelling and Clowning make for his unique style. Aside from his countless international improvisation and clowning workshops he also taught as a professor for circus techniques and theater improvisation at the University of Bogotá. After his internationally successful project "Speechless", an impro show without words with colleagues Daniel Orrantia and DJ Mama Cutsworth, he is now focussing his research on the genre of Magical Realism and also works on his first ever solo show, in which he combines his wide artistic scope from acrobatics to impro in a mesmerizing one man show.
