La Belle Escabelle
Have you ever wondered about the surprising number of ludicrous things a human being can do with a regular stepladder?

Doble ManDoble was founded in 2007 by the twin brothers Luis Javier and Miguel Ángel Córdoba Pelegrín. After a long and diverse artistic career encompassing magic, circus and acrobatics, they have decided to develop their own productions as creators and performers of their company’s work.
Doble ManDoble performances are distinguished by their energy, inventiveness and absurd humour, as well as by their technical expertise in various disciplines such as magic and acrobatics, all melded together to form a mise-en-scène overflowing with the poetic and the visual.
The public is seduced by the beauty and originality of their work, often spontaneously bursting into laughter.
They have been honoured with distinguished international awards recognising the quality of their work and their excellent staging.
In 2001 Doble Mandoble ventured into the realm of street theatre with “La Belle Escabelle”, this work was widely acclaimed for its originality, humor and technical skill.
