Ant Platas

This is a performance at 1st Convention of Juggling in Spain

In the end of 2006 Antonio Francisco Platas turning 75, but its not in condition to
appreciate it, we want to give to him another tribute from El Ambidextro. Platas was our
inspiratory, our friend and our teacher.
Thanks to him for our first circus enthusiasm and his company was always a big energy for our

Antonio Francisco Platas born 24th dicembre 1930 in Madrid. At 9 he start to practice with
three pool balls, animated from his uncle Chaliyò, circus clown on bycicle.
He debuted at 11, in Taborra, a little town of Albacete. His first teacher was Claliyo, but
he get a lot of ispiration from Egea, the portugues Manhisok, the phenomenom Felovis and an
incrible Bela Kremo.

In 1947 he woked with his brother Volantin (tightrope walker) at Circus Price.
From then, Ant Platas worked a lot for all of Spain, in theater, cinema, bull place an circus.

Ant Platas show was spectacular, beautiful and emotional. With tennis rackets was, the first to juggle with 6 rackets in the air, and his devil stick with sword, would show us an imaginary fight with himself.
He used also awata, most known as mouthstick, paperboard rings covered with silver paper, clubs and cigarboxes.

Ant Plata's clubs were made of wood and cork as shown in the picture.

For the public, Ant Platas exploted to enter on stage. He enjoyed sharing his art, maybe
this ability of communicate and his own symphaty, humanity and joy his best quality.

6th dicember 1997, we made an Ant Platas Tribute in Madrid, to collect money to pay what was missing for him retirement.

The last time we saw him, he didnt recognize himself in the his show at screen.
"This.. i was doing this, something similar i was doing" he told. If you didnt remember, we'll
remember you for sure, and we'll do all of possible to let others know who you are. For us,
the best.
