Corteo

Corteo, que en italiano significa cortejo, es una alegre procesión, un desfile festivo imaginado por un payaso. El espectáculo aúna la pasión del actor con la gracia y la potencia del acróbata para llevar al público a un mundo teatral de diversión, humor y espontaneidad situado en un misterioso espacio entre el cielo y la tierra.

El payaso muestra su propio funeral, que se celebra con aires de carnaval y bajo la mirada tranquila de ángeles. El espectáculo, que yuxtapone lo grande con lo pequeño, lo ridículo con lo trágico y la magia de la perfección con el encanto de la imperfección, destaca la fuerza y la fragilidad del payaso, así como su sabiduría y gentileza, para ilustrar la parte de humanidad que llevamos dentro de nosotros. La música, llena de lirismo y juguetona, hace de Corteo una celebración en la que la ilusión se burla de la realidad.

Corteo - Personajes

  • La payasa

    The Clowness is an actress, a veritable grande dame of the stage, who somehow found herself a part of this nutty troupe. Her professionalism and her strength of character allow her to bear the foolishness of her partners, whom she never fails to charm.

  • El payaso muerto

    The Dead Clown is the central character of the story, the one whom this fantastic funeral is honouring … but could it all be a dream? A former member of the troupe surrounding him, he dons his costume to perform onstage one last time.

  • El payaso gigante

    Although only an amateur opera singer, the Giant Clown imagines himself to be a great artist of worldwide renown. Without doubt, it is with him that the Dead Clown is closest, almost like brothers.

  • El payasito

    A diminutive clown who’s in love with the Clowness, the Little Clown is always ready to play tricks on his associates. Impish and lively, he is both an endearing companion and a force to be reckoned with.

  • El silbador fiel

    The origins of the Loyal Whistler lie in the classic role of “Mr. Loyal”, the ringmaster of traditional circuses. The Loyal Whistler evokes images of a former military man, one who has retrained in the circus arts but never quite lost his former ways. When he starts to whistle, his boundless artistic passion comes to the fore.

  • El payaso blanco

    For the White Clown, appearances are what matters most. Like the Loyal Whistler, he is an authority figure … at least, he’d like to be. Of all the colourful characters, he admires only the stars and scorns the others. It is the White Clown who opens the door to the magic of the circus for the Dead Clown.
