Madrid, Spain

Reflection on the everyday from the perspective of the clown. The character lives the experience of being trapped on stage. When he enters the scene does not know where he is getting.

It is a deceived person who enters there because they have told him that this is the way and suddenly, he is in front of an audience that looks at him and seems to demand something. He does not come to act, but is forced to do so.

The terror caused by the eyes of this public leads him to want to escape, to seek a way out. There is only one, but there is "someone invisible" that prevents him from escaping and forces him to stay on stage, facing those eyes that do not deviate from him.

He is alone with the danger and his only companions of crossing will be, from now on, a series of everyday objects with which tries to leave the step: a guitar, a chair, a jacket, a newspaper and a staircase.

With them as a shield, they play and improvise, suffer and have fun. Objects are transformed into his hands into great friends or terrible enemies, because he has forgotten, or perhaps has never known, its use.

As a child, faces for the first time objects, for us everyday, and for him absolutely mysterious and surprising. Climbing a ladder or putting on a jacket are almost impossible tasks for him.

Again we are faced with a metaphor in which the clown is each of us and his game is nothing but our life, we are forced to exist and forced to act, we do not know where we have gotten and we must move on.

* At the end of the show, talk about the NGO Clowns Without Borders.



Fekat Circus means "flourishing circus". It all started in 2004 when Dereje Dagne, a young man who grew up in the streets of Addis Ababa, formed a circus along with other street children. Realizing how this changed their lives in a positive way, wanted to share with other children that experience.

Since then, they have never stopped looking for how to become role models. They train young people living in disadvantaged areas of Addis Ababa, trying to keep them away from the risks of a dangerous lifestyle and urban poverty.

The rise of the moon
Show with all the force and the overflowing passion of Africa.

The components of Fekat Circus, their craftsmanship, their strength and refined technique, all of them make us enjoy a shocking and different show.

The power and luminosity of acrobatics and other circus numbers give deep and penetrating music color.

Taller de circo La Berta 806/5000
This tent is very unique ... 'La Berta' is a real circus factory!

Unlike other circuses, this does not take the artists incorporated, but it looks for where it happens to all those who want to become for a day the protagonists of this show. No matter how old you are: test your skills at La Berta!

How does it work?

We understand the circus workshop as the recreation of a play space for parents and children, designed to play together and not as a "daycare" activity. Therefore, this facility does not have monitors that teach the skills, but its managers will be present to ensure the good use of the material, encouraging adults to enter the tent and participate in the proposed activities.

Tandarica Circus
For many years this troupe of artists has traveled the world offering its circus show with a classic aftertaste, zingaro and full of surprise elements.

To do this they move with their car that becomes the scene of their follies in each town in which they stop.

They know that the public expects a lot of them and they go out to give everything with their circus show, which is what they really know how to do. Or so they say ... They call it "retro-balkan-rock'n'roll circus" but, speaking in silver, there are only four clowns crazy as a cowbell and capable of anything to satisfy their audience, from shooting a cannon in the stomach, Improvise aerial routines or play with a knife thrower with severe myopia. They are artists of those who play their own life ... and if it is not yours, make it from someone in the audience! You can not miss your next show: every show may be the last!

"LUDO circus show" is the staging of the spirit of the game through the circus. It is an atmosphere, a playful state. When seven characters appear on stage willing to play, there are winners and losers, voluntary and involuntary punches, tuning and disenchantment, fun, teamwork and individualism.

Recognizable games intermingled with circus techniques such as scales, balances, acrobatics or juggling. Is the circus itself a game?

A look at recognizable situations with which we will travel to our own experiences.

At some point, somewhere, we've all played. Or maybe we have not stopped ...
