THE BEAUTY WITCH CIRCUS

Participative Play for Children and Adults

By Carla Giúdice

THE STORY

The Beauty-Witch came from the Witches' Kingdom to look for people who want to act.

“If a good show she can provide, for the Witches' Art Academy she can fully qualify “

So beware! it's your chance to join her act. She pays with candies and that's a fact!

The Beauty-Witch brings along a mission,

"She will practise the Art of Fun!!!"


WHAT CAN BE SAID ABOUT THIS CIRCUS? WHAT ARE ITS QUALITIES?

Children and adults participate with complete freedom to choose their own way to express themselves, with no conditionings to their choice.
In this Circus, new spaces are generated for the participants to be listened to,to be paid attention, to be stimulated and observed by the audience.

It is a recreational play because it is built up by different games and it is also educational because by means of games “the Artists” also learn how to make decisions, make choices and to express themselves through the performance. Free expression is encouraged.

INFORMATION

Each performance is special, unique and unrepeatable. It is about 60 minutes long and can be performed in different places such as theaters, parks, schools, birthday parties and parties in general.


It can be performed either in English or Spanish.

The play costume is by Cintia Vietto, A. Suarez and A. Dangelo, the illustrations by Ignacio Carbonari and the original soundtrack by Sebastián García Ferro.

Play translated to English by Naty Barry and website by Flor Delgado
