Albert Vidal Paz is without a doubt one of the great masters of the art of voice and movement. Recognized in Spain as one of the most important theater creators, at the beginning of the 90s in Europe he was presented, by the London Institute of Contemporary Arts, as Grand Master of European Performing Arts, amid unanimous acclaim from the critics .

His work is the result of a coherent line of interpretation inherited from three great contemporary masters: Jacques Lecoq, Dario Fo and Kazuo Ōno.

Likewise, he has collaborated with the Mai Juku Company, by Min Tanaka, in the Plan B space in Tokyo.
