A tribute to circus traditions, the show revisits classic clowning sketches based on the story of three clowns, who put up a small tent in the middle of the street to present a variety show. To the sound of many “screamers”, the marches played to accompany circus routines, the trio challenge each other and perform reprise (comic mime scenes), acrobatics, juggling and music acts.

“We have a real obsession with the circus, a passion that makes us be here to this day,” says actor Fernando Sampaio, one of the founders of Cia LaMínima, a group that for two decades has delved into the art of clowning. “And those classic sketches have a craftsmanship that really appeals to us.”

In a work of great technical precision, the performers recapture the ludic memory of the arena, alternating between numbers of humour, physical skills and music. With an original soundtrack by Marcelo Pellegrini, award-winning show composer and long-time partner of the company, the cast ventures into eccentric instruments, such as the saw and the bottle piano, and also appears as a brass band – referring, then, to the “charanga” in the title.
