COMMISSURE With the colaboration of:

Companyia PatrĂ­cia Pardo www.patriciapardo.es


"Welcome to the circus of the commissure!, hinge or border, safe conduct or misunderstanding, tunnel or subtlety. The millimetre of the millimetre that separates a smile from nothing, a sexual kiss from nothingness, tenderness from disgust, heartbreak from beauty, betrayal from one's right to privacy, identification from misanthropy, the other from oneself. " Companyia PatrĂ­cia Pardo www.patriciapardo.es


Best Actress Mention to the best comedy show Festival Iberoamericano de Teatro Cumbre de las AmĂŠricas 2012

Circus of Comissura is a knickersless trapeze artist, an unfaithful percusionist (betrayal or right to one's own privacy?), a waxed woman drowned in 20 litres of wax, an enriched poor man (necessity or insatiability?)... Comissura, a circus whose drama is presented with exposure of 7 clown numbers. It talks about the pressure other people put on one's own body, about our inability to tell need from insatiability, about murder and maternal instinct (or how the society of consummation makes us devour our children), about the pulse and the defeat caused by our own momentum, about the beauty in heartbreak (much beauty in heartbreak), about pessimism as action used to affect the people looking, about jealousy and the confusion between treason and people’s right to privacy. Comissura connects us to the melancholy of recognizing that we live with joy, and the strangeness that assumes the existence, contradictions, mixed and subtle feelings. The corners, the commissure.

Patrícia Pardo’s works are dramatic creations that develop a research project on the coexistence of conventional clown expression (the existing language) and contemporary expression (the imagined), using any artistic tool even though they do not fit conservative parameters of theatre and circus. This mix of classic and contemporary traits means: - Use of physical and technical abilities or use of gag as a means, as metaphor, and not a means to an end - Research on the composition of live music - Interpretive break between character-artist - Transgression of form and content propieties - Wonder where the current « even more difficult » is ?

PRESS "The characters that are conferred by Patricia Pardo are beasts as life itself. And funny. And foul-mouthed. And punks, surreal, pathetic, sentimental. And more. She makes them plasticine. Metaphor. "

(Núria Cadenes, EL TEMPS) "Able to keep its audience with a heavy heart throughout the show (...) An excellent critical discourse current times"

(Cartelera QUÉ Y DÓNDE)

“Proposal surreal and delicate humour "

(Nel Diago, Cartelera Turia)

"The best humor with classic circus elements to build a smile on stage, but this time thinking of adults and with the intent to put the focus on the absurd everyday things"

(Página 66.com “Patrícia Pardo fa somriure al Principal”)
