About The Performance
Audiences will be drawn into the silent story of Juan Salvador, a theatre stagehand with a vivid imagination who spends his workdays tidying backstage while his imagination ranges far and wide! Handkerchiefs are pigeons, cotton explodes in his hands, and dressing rooms turn into the moon, the sea, or a gloomy mansion in this tragicomic pantomime. Juan Salvador lives wonderfully absurd adventures that do not always have happy endings and almost always cause a disaster when his imagination returns to reality and to his job at the theatre.
Chilean-Spanish-French theater company La Mona Ilustre gives us the U.S. debut of the one-man show Juan Salvador Custodian as the first show of this fall’s Festival of Firsts series.
