“Perhaps, Perhaps…” Gabriel Munoz – Mexico City – 2012 NY Clown Theatre Festival

“Perhaps, Perhaps…Quizas”

(Description from the NY Clown Theatre Festival Brochure)

If at first you don’t succeed, try again … and again … and again. Perhaps, Perhaps … Quizás is a clown piece playing with the idea of loneliness, and waiting and hoping for the right man. In an era where nothing seems to impress anyone anymore and longing for “real love” seems to be the burden of our time, Greta, our protagonist, is a lonely woman who rehearses once a week for the arrival of the so-called “one.” Will she get lucky tonight? Perhaps, Perhaps … Quizás…

The wedding ceremony involved all audience members.

The newlyweds kiss at the end of the ceremony.

Carried across the ‘threshold’ with quite a strange look.

The ‘newlyweds’ try a little dance together.

Something isn’t right here!

Let’s see what I can do without him seeing me!

“Don’t run, RUSH!” – Mona Ray – Finland – 2012 NY Clown Theatre Festival

Don’t run, RUSH!

Directed by Lilli Sukula-Lindblom

(Description from NY Clown Theatre Festival Brochure)

This absurdly fascinating comedy comes straight from Finland, known for its wintery darkness and summery light, where people neither talk, kiss, nor laugh out loud. The bold and hot-blooded Mona Ray conjures up therapeutic as well as hysterical and infectious laughter. Don’t run, RUSH! features four different pictures of reality in its most absurd forms. A one-woman show where the viewer is never safe. The feeling of danger brings that extra spice to this comedy act where the recipient gives and all is taken.

In this presentation, believe it or not, the audience really wants to participate! Come along and experience Mona’s incredible characters!
