RICARDO CORNELIUS -PEREGRINO (ES)
A performance of clown, physical theatre and visual poetry.
Borders in the world are drawn by people, however, when the rules are defined, they feel inhuman, because they are far from reality … Dreamcatchers we fall into. We walk a path in which each one load our own house like in a trailer, where it seems that a long rope connects us to our roots. We walk with many memories united by a fishing net.
Migration is a brave act, a game that allows us to transform any reality unexpectedly; since, suddenly, everything changes. Even some episodes could be funny. Clown technique helps us to tell this story, without words, only with the body as a tool of communication. This is Peregrino.
We are sure that the power of a smile is the only means that destroys all borders, we want the public accompany us and improvise the adventures that we will form together in the show: Peregrino
