Presented by ‘Triciclo Rojo’, Mexico in association with ThinkArts
Jaipur, 2 December: As a part of the weekend theater and cultural activities at Jawahar Kala Kendra (JKK), a non verbal play ‘Vagabond’ was staged today for school children. Around 200 students from various schools like St. Edmund’s School, Jawahar Nagar; Ryan International School, Jagatpura and Tagore International School, Mansarovar saw the staging of the play. Children from the slum area of Jhalana Doongri were also present.
The play narrated the story of three vagabonds in search of happiness and how a dandelion changed their meaning of life. Cazzo, Lazzo and Pozzo spent their days trying to fix a lighthouse. As the story moved on, a journey through braveness, fraternity and tenderness wrapped the travellers.
Through the medium of danza clown and the poetic encounter between imagination and body, the dancers told their original stories and lived within a clown universe. They conveyed simple yet meaningful messages through poetic stories that included animation and live music, creating an environment through which children could interact.
Triciclo Rojo is the creation of young artists fusing dance, clown, plastic arts and imagination. Children are their inspiration and audience.
The play was directed by Emiliano Cardenas and saw the performance of Emiliano Cardenas, Elizabeth De Anda, Yuridia Ortega. The original music was created by the American Mad Marionettes Group. The video art from the animated scenarios was created by Onirika, directed by Mario Rosales. The original theatrical idea was created by Emiliano Cardenas, in collaboration with Francous Duregne, a French dramatist clown.
The play will be staged tomorrow for the general public at 6.30 pm at Rangayan Auditorium of JKK. The entry is through tickets which can be obtained from JKK’s office.
