There has been a strong circus tradition in Madrid since the 19th century, with accounts of the genre given by everyone from writers like Ramón Gómez de la Serna to painters like Gutiérrez Solana. It was even said that the Madrileños spent the winter watching zarzuela and the summer at the Price enjoying the circus. Continuing this “custom”, Veranos de la Villa has partnered with Teatro Circo Price to offer two evenings of circus acts and shows as part of the festival programme. Breathtaking feats, sky-high suspense, jugglers and tightrope walkers will delight all audiences in Conde Duque’s theatre.
The first evening in the Conde Duque Circus programme will begin with the Circo Deriva troupe and its award-winning show Ya es tiempo de hablar del amor. Based on real events with a healthy dose of fiction thrown in for good measure, the story revolves around four forty-something circus performers whose bodies are nearing their expiration date in the society we live in. With humour, music, juggling, acrobatics and a style of circus brimming with poetry, they create a hilarious show full of emotions that raises questions about the passage of time and reinventing oneself as an artist and a person with honesty, camaraderie, humour and courage.
