El Gran Circo Criollo

Ariel Bufano

Puppet theatres are mysterious places. Their inhabitants have the power to reinvent the world. El Gran Circo Criollo chooses to take us behind the scenes of a rag menagerie. Gigantic animals, tiny people and a fearless gaucho. A feast for the eyes.


“A sumptuous parade of animals, the epitome of all possible or imaginable kinds of circuses… All the props are imbued with an intangible poetic substance.” -YM. Diario Tiempo, Buenos Aires, Argentina
