in “La Band’Animal”
Taormina Congress Hall, Sala B – December 10, 2023 @ 4.00pm
Genre: Musical Clown, puppetry
Audience: Suitable for everyone
Duration: 55 mins.
Graduated from the Universidad Externado de Colombia in 2004 and since then has intertwined her life as a lawyer with the juggling art she learned in Spain in the 90s, up until 2007. She became one of the pioneers in bringing circus arts to Colombia as an urban practice, beyond the traditional tents, and introducing it to the university at the Externado de Colombia.
Her fundamental pillar is the audience, as she firmly believes in exploring emotions and human relationships to find a point of connection that links the audience to each of her wonderful works that have been showcased in many parts of the world.
The Band’ Animal explores and experiments with the universe of musical clowning. It is the search for visual and auditory poetry within chaos. Beauty within what is labeled as trash. It is a participatory concert realized alongside the audience, an essential element of the entire performance.
The protagonist is Maestra Divarius, an eccentric character, animal-loving philanthropist, dedicated to her project of socio-human-animal inclusion and rehabilitation.
This particular group of plastic animals transforms into music stars. There are 18 plastic toy animals, including five pigs, a seal, a dog, a cow, a goat, a chicken, a duck, and a sheep. They discover their true talent that gives meaning to their lives through music.
The life stories and triumphs of these small animals move and inspire, inviting playfulness and highlighting the simplicity of life, taking the audience on a journey of absurdity and surprises, almost leaving them in stitches from laughter.
“Laughter is what I take most seriously,” says Paula Malik.
