The Cla. Soles de Vento was born in 2007 in the city of São Paulo, of the partnership between the French actor and dancer Bruno Rudolf, master of physical theater, puppet manipulation and circus techniques, and the Brazilian Ricardo Rodrigues, circus artist specializing in aerial and clown techniques. Since its creation, the company uses in its dramaturgy the mixture of elements of pantomime or gestural theater, without the use of words, of circus techniques and contemporary dance. While the original soundtracks punctuate the movement in the scene. Add to the group's identity, the use of live video projection and manipulation of objects.
