The Clown´s Minute

It is the day of “The Circus Tribute Festival”, a charity performance in which circus acts are performed in a theatre. A clown is waiting his turn at the orchestra pit. He is going to make his grand entrance onto the stage through the trapdoor. Sitting in solitude while waiting, he reviews and evokes moments from his past where he reminisces on his relationship with his family and the events and people that shaped him in the circus where he was born.

A TV producer has come to offer him the opportunity to perform the same act on TV, every day, at 1am during the late show. He has just one minute to make his mark.

Online dramatised reading of the play The Clown’s Minute by José Ramón Fernandez in an English translation by Puerto Baker and Gavin Baker, directed by Jorge de Juan with Ivanhoe Norona.

Produced by the Cervantes Theatre and Spanish Theatre Company with the support of Acción Cultural Española and the collaboration of the Cervantes Institute, INAEM and the Spanish Embassy in London.
