Red Pearl women’s clown festival 7.–10.2.2018
Gabriela Muñoz (MEX): Perhaps, perhaps….Quizas
If at first you don´t succeed, try again… and again… and again.
Perhaps, Perhaps… Quizás is a heart-wrenching as well as hilarious clown piece playing with the idea of loneliness, the wait and hope for Mr. Right. In an era where nothing seems to impress one another anymore, the longing for “real love” seems to be the burden of our time. Greta, our protagonist, is a lonely woman who rehearses once a week the arrival of the so called ‘one’. Will she get lucky tonight? Perhaps, perhaps, quizas…
…Quizas premiered in New York in 2010 and since then has been performed around the world to various clown and theatre festivals in New York, Brazil, Colombia, Georgia, France, Spain, UK and Sweden.
“Audience members are on the edge of their seats as they watch this outrageous, but somehow relatable story with bated breath.”
– Kimberly Laurenne, Show Business Weekly, NY

Colette Gomette (FRA): Prézidente
Hired as security for the new French presidential candidate, she unfortunately knocks out the candidate and slips into her role in order to cover up the mistake. The feisty, unrefined, animalistic, and fierce Colette Gomette suddenly finds herself in her element. She hops and jumps, races and listens, she whines and snorts, she discovers the world of politics with passion. Totally wired, she entrances her listeners and enjoys her power, maybe even too much.
Hélène Gustin aka Colette Gomette, has been pursuing her clown career since 1996, primarily on stage but also on the street and at all kinds of events. She also works as a clown doctor in a hospital with the French organization Rire Médecin. Colette Gomette is one-of-a-kind; after her training with Jacques Lecoq, she acted in several plays, put five clown shows on stage, and went on a number of world tours. She also runs workshops and is a trained jazz dancer as well as burlesque artist. “Vote for Colette Gomette!“ Duration 70 min.
