The Show Must Go On!!

THELMO PAROLE “The Show Must Go On!!” is an original idea of the spanish artist Samuel Penhastro, result of a deep study and evoluttion along 15 years of artistic carrer, creating, directing and performing in many different projects.

A very intense and delicated work focused upon the conecttion with the audience. Thelmo Parole mix disciplines like mime, balancing, juggling or slapstic. All of them are used as a key to improvise situattions, play games, share moments, evoke emotions…

From his unique and genuine, sometimes eccentric sense of humor, and a nearly missing sense of ridicule, Thelmo connects with the audience in an organical, humble, naked, and unpretentious way,transforming his sophisticated and nearly clumsy appearance into a ridiculous and nearly athletic one: taking off his glasses and changing his Suit with classic shoes and tie into a lycra and a superhero cape…

Thelmo, from his naive perspective and enthusiastic nature, creates a personal and close relationship with the audience, a subtle dialogue space, in a direct language without words.

Inspired by great Clowns from Grock to Buster Keaton, and transformed by the influences of modern times…

A Circus Show where the skills are not of primary importance…

A tribute to the silent movies, where nothing goes beyond the character.
