MANDRAGORA CIRCUS Heads to Alexander Upstairs This Weekend
Mandragora Circus will perform at Alexander Upstairs Theatre this weekend, July 2 and July 3. Performed by Mariana Silva and Juan Cruz Bracamonte, the show is written and directed by Juan Cruz Bracamonte.
Mandragora Circus is a wordless theatre performance where two clowns tell a story of comedy and love in which dialogue is visible without words. Circus stunts, music and unconventional instruments weave the acts of this play together where gestures are the only thing that allows the audience to imagine situations, conflicts and solutions in a delicate story for all audiences.
