International Solo Festival

Cuerdo

Cine-Teatro Garrett, Subpalco (Understage)

Synopsis

Welcome to the world of Señor StetS. String charmer, knot tamer, and wandering fool. One rope to "juggle", another that behaves like a viper. A little fish almost alive. Mousetraps for an odd fakery act.

In Cuerdo, Stets leads the audience through a show that combines the subtle playfulness of the clown and the tension of a horror film, using elements of circus, dance, object manipulation, and puppetry.

Bringing together material from various shows with different constellations, strings and mousetraps, he invites the audience into his world. A world of play, movement and a lot of surprise, based on simplicity.

...accompanied by a cassette tape and a rustic megaphone.
