Noe España, Board Member
Mr. España, a fifth generation heir to an incredible variety of circus talent and history, with family roots in both Europe and North America, knows his business from both the performer side of the spotlight and from behind-the-scenes involvement in production, direction, and logistics.
Challenged and inspired by the most incredible acts in the circus repertoire, those demanding the greatest precision, skill, and style, he has pushed the envelope with his interpretations of the Flying Trapeze, Wheel of Destiny, and Globe of Death, among other aerial and thrill acts, winning a Silver Clown at the International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo.
And he has also for more than two decades been deeply involved as both collaborator and guiding light in the programming, direction, and production of circus-themed entertainment. His industry credits, too numerous to list in their entirety here, include the prestigious Action Maverick Award presented to him by New York’s MacArthur Genius Award choreographer and dance maverick Elizabeth Streb. It has been said that Noe España is the quintessential Renaissance man of contemporary circus. His vast technical expertise and sensitivity to the arts and family values guarantee that any production he creates or directs will be masterpiece quality and adored by audiences of all ages.
Noe had appeared on Fox television’s “KISS in Concert” national broadcast and has performed at events ranging from The Sydney Opera House, Madison Square Garden with Ringling Brothers Circus USA and Japan, Six Flags Parks in the USA Championship Auto Shows, and the Walmart’s Annual Shareholders’ Meeting with Queen Latifah, to the Annual Gala of the Fight for Children Foundation, which featured a musical performance by Stevie Wonder.
