David Climent IN RESiDENCE at the School Salvador Espriu

David Climent (Castelló, 1977). Actor, performer, dramatist, stage director and paella maker.

He was born in Castelló in 1977. His mother was a butcher and his father a bricklayer. His closest artistic influence was his uncle, Paulino, who sang at weddings, christenings and communions as part of an orchestra. Before discovering his creative side, he tried his hand at various activities, as a boy scout, an athlete, a bricklayer, a surveyor's assistant and a waiter, among others.

Around 1993, he founded La Nefaria and Poaldefem, where he took part in a series of performances arising from a strong social and political commitment. In 1997, after some years of instinctive and self-taught creations, he decided to train as an actor, taking part in various workshops and seminars, and he studied at the Jaume I University's Theatre Classroom. While he was there, along with other students, he founded La Casual, a theatre company linked to the university, and he met Pablo Molinero, with whom he created Loscorderos.sc in 2003.

He has worked as a performer with companies such as La Danaus, Sol Picó, La Fura dels Baus, Visitants and La Viuda, as well as with creators such as Sergi López, Jorge Picó, Juan Carlos Lérida and Enric Montefusco. He has also collaborated with various stage projects, including: Caín & Caín by Mal Pelo, Pelat by Joan Català, Compra’m and The legend of burning man by Insectotròpics, Wasted and  La calavera de Connemara by Iván Morales, and Ji Gou by Neus Vila Jurgens, among others.

Since 2016, he has been working with Pia Nielsen (Miss Q) on the Animal Vegetal musical project.
