Argentine circus comes to Zim

HARARE - Mandragora Circus from Argentina will hold three shows in Bulawayo this month at the invitation of Nhimbe Trust.

The circus will first perform at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo on August 10 before taking their act to the Zimbabwe Academy of Music in Bulawayo on August 12 and 13.

Mandragora Circus’ wordless performance is 55 minutes long with two clowns who tell a story of comedy and love.

Circus stunts, music and unconventional instruments weave the acts of this play together, allowing the audience to imagine situations, conflicts and solutions in a delicate story for all.

The performance is part of their worldwide tour, which has covered the American continent, Europe and now Africa in the past six years.

The play has been performed in 26 countries in more than 13 years.

In Zimbabwe, it will also be presented in Harare on dates to be advised.

Mandragora Circus started as an independent theatre company in 2002 in Trelew, Chubut, Patagonia, Argentina.

It was formed by Mariana Silva and Juan Cruz Bracamonte who previously had been members of other companies performing music, theatre, dance and circus since 1998.

Part of the proceeds from the shows will go towards the “Breast and Cervical Cancer Awareness Exhibition” by the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Bulawayo.
