Mexican Embassy Hosts Clown Show at the Bliss

A cold front is forecasted for the weekend, but it doesn’t mean you need to stay at home. The Embassy of Mexico is putting off a show at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts that will have children rolling in laughter. Three Mexican artists that make up the theater clown company, Triciclo Rojo, will be debuting a play, Poeta de la Bajo, The Basin Poet. The group of dancers and clowns integrate dance, juggling, animation and music to create comedic pieces for children. Triciclo Rojo has performed plays across the world and arrived in the Jewel today from Mexico City. According to group member, Natalia Gardenas, “The Basin Poet” is a play that promotes among children, the importance of believing in their own dreams and the ability to make them a reality.

“We are here to perform “Poeta de la Bajo.” It is a story about Etolo and Bum and Hum. Etolo is a knight that is going to rescue the miracles of the people. People have lost their miracles and so he with our help is going to find the miracles that are lost all over the world. So if you come to the theatre, you are going to be able to get a miracle.”

“Now we know that you guys have been performing all over the world. Tell us about coming together as a group; how long have you guys been doing this?”

 

Natalia Gardenas

“We have been together for eight years, almost ten years. We have been performing all around Mexico, the US, Colombia, China, Brazil, Portugal, Canada, Spain. And we are like now for the first time in Belize and we are very excited and happy and waiting for the kids to come and let us know how they enjoy our performance.”

“Tell us about how you guys have been able to keep it fresh, keep it new and not becoming another cliché?”

“At least in Mexico, what we do is kind of different. We are dancers and then we found the clown. Emiliano is responsible for us to be clowns. So clowning is something that is in our lives every day. We are very close to kids and we are always looking at how they act, how they work, how they play and we took these things and that’s the way we are actually—also when we don’t have a red nose. So we are like always playing and we are always looking for little miracles. Little miracles, we call that, little things that happen in life that would inspire us and things that you can just hold; like the laugh of a kid or something like that.”

“Lastly just tell us why people should come out to the show.”

 

Natalia Gardenas

“Maybe because you have never seen three beautiful clowns like us. No, no. (Laughs) You should come because Triciclo Rojo is a company that works especially for kids; that we always do our performance thinking about kids, thinking about happiness, thinking about how every kid is responsible of constructing his or her own happiness. So here at the theatre you are going to see us sharing, playing; being like closest friends and being happy and fun in our happiness. So you are going to be able to find some happiness.”

 

Poeta de la Bajo, The Basin Poet, will be showing free of cost at the Bliss Center for the Performing on Saturday, at five p.m.
