Había una vez, mi familia

Circus · Theatre

A theatrical and musical show that not only pays tribute to Fofito, his father and uncles, Los Payasos de la Tele, but also pays tribute to the Clown genre and to an era that marked the childhood of a generation of children who grew up in the 70s and 80s.

Grandma Eva is going to celebrate her birthday with her grandchildren, until a weather warning prevents them from coming. She is about to put everything prepared in her attic when, suddenly, a box comes to life and all the memories of her childhood appear: a small carousel, a music box, her toys, a Cinexin, an old television set where she used to watch her favorite programs. Suddenly the TV set turns on and the TV Clowns show appears. To the question “How are you?”, Eva, our grandmother, answers what we all have in our heads. The attic begins to transform until, in a magical space, Fofito materializes in flesh and blood next to her. Fofito and his troupe of crazy clowns will accompany Eva on a journey through a world of memories and dreams, in a theatrical and musical show that not only pays tribute to Fofito and his uncles, Los Payasos de la Tele, but also pays tribute to the Clown genre and to an era that marked the childhood of a generation of children who grew up in the 70s and 80s.

In the show we will go through all the subgenres and techniques characteristic of the world of clowning, such as gestural, textual, parody, circus and technique, and in all its formats, such as the complete classical entrance, musical numbers, textual humor, visual poetics, symbolism or magic. The great creators of the genre will be vindicated in Once Upon a Time: My Family.
