Brilliant storytelling beautifully conveys brutal reality
Simultaneously funny, sweet and brutal. Carnaval will take you on a journey tracking the stories of children from across the world, all outcasts of society. The children seen searching through rubble for something to eat, ones arriving parentless at border crossings, far removed from everything good, beautiful and prosperous. In endearing and playful fashion, Chilean Teatro Anónimo gives them a voice – brilliantly portrayed by three adults – reflecting children's typical resilience and candidness. Anyone who as ever celebrated Carnival will recognise hierarchy's temporary disappearance, time standing still, and the refreshing effect this has. Bearing this in mind, with humour, music, song and dance, director Trinidad Gónzalez has created a sorely missed collage of the reality we all share, featuring eight different heart-rending situations linked together. It is storytelling at its best, in a refined melange of light and dark.

A very special experience, whose name conveys an event, an atmosphere and a cultural dimension that includes music and dance, as well as the humor that surfaces at even the saddest moments”
