About the show “Pachamamo”

Carrying jokes, sounds and tricks in his humble suitcase, Cronopio the clown arrives and starts to explore the neighbourhood.  The sweet but clumsy clown interacts with the new place (or maybe the place he hasn’t been to for a while) and people he meets there.

Pachamama is a goddess revered by the indigenous peoples of the Andes. In Inca mythology she is an “Earth Mother” type goddess, and a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting, embodies the mountains, and causes earthquakes. Pachamama (pacha + mama) is usually translated as Mother Earth. A more literal translation would be “World Mother” (in the Aymara and Quechua languages).
