Pícaro, bitácora de un migrante by Pelú Theater (2018 Fury Factory Festival)
Pícaro, bitácora de un migrante is inspired and loosely adapted from an original text by Mauricio Jimenez. Lazarito, a 13-year old boy from Guatemala, its forced by the circumstances to leave his family, his home town. Seen as the only savior, a potential door for a better life, he is guided to embark in an adventure; the journey of immigration. Whats ahead? Crossing the Giant country of Mexico with the eyes set on the land of the free. Trains, thieves, friends, food(or lack of), Priests, Nuns, Coyotes, Lazarito grows up, trickstering around, finding his way through out this treacherous journey. Elements of Contemporary Circus Arts, physical comedy, Masks, Magic, music and the audience playing the role of accomplices will serve as main vocabulary for the re-telling of this classic tale.
Pelú Theatre Inc. is a company based in Charlotte, NC but rooted in San Juan, Puerto Rico. As a result, its artists are interested in the conversation between the theatre tendencies of these two particular places, giving birth to a third theatre out of a cultural limbo. The company is mainly interested in fusions... circus and theatre, Commedia and melodramas, clowns and death.
