"It catches us, makes us fall in love again, slides us down a slide and back, almost without realizing it we laugh again like when we were children..."
-Revista Lucarna (Argentina)
Silence, laughter and poetry come together in an extremely delicate and fun show that starts from minimal gestures and reaches the great questions of each and every one of us, by the hand of an artist.
A clown show full of silences, angels and demons, where the body is in charge of writing words in a universal language. The arenas are corners in the life of this clown, who bares his soul while building crazy stories through a constant game with everyday elements.
Silencio, risa y poesía se conjugan en un espectáculo delicado y divertido que parte de cuestiones mínimas para llegar a las grandes cuestiones del ser humano.
Un espectáculo de clown lleno de silencios, ángeles y demonios. En esta pieza teatral que combina clown, mimo y malabares, el cuerpo escribe palabras en un lenguaje universal. En los rincones de su hogar, un payaso desnuda su alma mientras construye delirantes historias a través de un juego constante con elementos cotidianos.
