He has conducted such concerts as Victus 1714 with the Vallès Symphony Orchestra and the Madrigal Choir (Palau de la Música, 2013), Cobla 2.0 with Cobla Sant Jordi (Palau de la Música, 2013) and Ocell de foc with Barcelona Municipal Band (Auditori, 2010).

He received the 2011 FAD-Sebastià Gasch Prize, the 2008 Injuve Prize and the Extraordinary Prize awarded by the Theatre Institute in 2007. In 2013, he won the Third Catalan Playwriting Competition at the Temporada Alta Festival with his text Muda muda, and he was a finalist at the Second Transatlantic Playwriting Tourney in Buenos Aires (2014). 

The current six members are all engaged in different practices, such as dramaturgy, set design, performance, music, audiovisual art and the world of multimedia. Adopting an “indie” stance, they seek a personal language for saying things. The group are embarked on an endless voyage, intent on never stagnating and on exploring teamwork, the exchange of disciplines, experiment and risk, rather than becoming obsessed with end results.
