TOURS IN ARGENTINA

We premiered the show Mandragora Circus in the city of Trelew, Chubut, Patagonia in January 2003. At that time theater directors and actors began recommending the show to be presented in theaters and festivals, that made us see that the show was innovative, for not to use the word but also for being a clown show with circus skills in which a story is told and presented in theaters. From the first presentations they defined it as “The circus made poetry”

From Trelew we began to tour the region, covering the vast distances of Patagonia. We performed in theaters, cultural center and schools of the Chubut province.
