“Guerra” – A Clown Play performed by La Piara @ The Tank

They describe the show as follows:

“A military farce from Mexico with love”

It is a wonderfully funny show that combines slapstick, dance, bouffant and farce to tell the story of a military outpost desparate for recruits.

The company La Piara is Artus Chavez, Fernando Cordova and Madeleine Sierra Carrascal.  They are superb comics and actors.

Here are a few photographs from the show.
