About the show “Pachamamo”

Pachamama is an ancient goddess for the Latin American indigenous people. She is the “Mother Earth”, the fertility goddess. What is the relationship we have with mother earth? When we travel – does the relationship change? If it does – how?
Carrying sounds, tricks and other knick-knacks in his suitcase, our clumsy traveller tries to explore a new place. Or is it new? Maybe it feels familiar after all.
Through humorous and unexpected ways Cronopio explores what it means to be a traveller.

About the Cronopio the clown

Cronopio (Mariano Gedwillo) is a clown, director, tightrope walker and juggler from Argentina with family roots in Latvia. He started his career in the art world in 1997, performing in Argentina and other South American countries, as well as in Europe. In 2002, he founded the clown theatre company Compañía de Trabajadores Kallejeros, so that clowning would reach not only big cities, but also small towns and villages. Mariano’s search for a true and authentic Clown character is based on the realities of life, so he is interested in interacting with very different audiences – rich and poor, young and old, serious and funny, interested and sceptical.

La Nuit du Cirque is an international event to promote contemporary circus creation that is initiated and organized by the Territoires de Cirque.
