NO TODO SON PULGAS: MEMORIAS Y DESMEMORIAS DE UN PERRO FAMOSO

Yllana

No todo son pulgas

Paco the dog was a friendly stray who captivated Madrid in a different era, going down in its history after being adopted by the entire city and becoming the focus of numerous newspaper articles and Costumbrist accounts of Madrid in the final quarter of the 19th century. He never had an owner and turned up at theatres and trendy restaurants. He sneaked into the famous cafés where social gatherings and discussions were held in Madrid, he had his own seat at the bullring… Veranos de la Villa invites you Yllana revisits this story for Madrid’s residents, bringing the famous canine protagonist of life in the city into the 21st century in a show for all audiences that blends history, emotions and humour as it tells the story of Paco's life.

 

No todo son pulgas: memorias y desmemorias de un perro famoso was conceived as a polyphonic performance in which the most diverse of styles and voices weave a varied web of emotions and visual and sound stimuli. As was typical of the variety shows held in the “singing cafés” (cafés cantantes) of the second half of the 19th century, music, gestural comedy, songs, verse, popular speech, lyricism, interaction with the audience, laughs and tender feelings come together in this entertaining, well put-together set of performing arts polyphonies. The aim is to entertain, move and tell people the story of Paco the dog, who one day became the city of Madrid's most famous character.
