The Mamafesta tells the experience of Marina , who has just discovered motherhood, and talks about what is not discussed: pregnancy, childbirth, the relationship with in-laws or sex after giving birth. It is a show directed by Marga Parrilla about recent motherhood in a humorous way and with musical touches.
Quatrelements was followed by the contemporary circus company Madame Gaüc , formed by Maria Palma and Raimón Mató , who offered an excerpt from Fil , a creation that explores human relationships and overcoming problems in common using a universal language: the physicality . It is “a poetic, thoughtful and close show, in which balances are always present,” they comment from the company itself.
