La Querida Company
“La Querida” Company was established based on the efforts of Antonia Gonzalez and Amanda Wilson, who have enjoyed different career paths and artistic experiences. They took the decision to work together with a view to creating a creative core that projects the diversity and richness of their artistic proposals. The idea also involved creating an easy-to-move set that facilitates accessibility to different audiences and spaces.
Artistically, they are unified by the idea of a generous circus, simple in language but deep in content, to create an artistic expression that can be enjoyed by children and adults worldwide.
