Julieta

In her latest work, Julieta, the clown Gabriela Muñoz tells the story of a woman – full of experiences and quirkiness – and the multiple layers that old age brings.

Inspired by Gabriela’s work at a nursing home and the strong relationship with her grandmother, Gabriela creates an endearing alter ego that finds herself at the final steps of life. Bursting with wit and a zest for life, Julieta shares her days with us and invites us into her home that has become her whole world. As her surroundings morph into a mirror house of memories, the central character finds new ways to adapt.Julieta creates an immersive, idiosyncratic cosmos of rich imagery, imagination and attention to detail. This one-woman show is as rich and varied as life itself. In the spring of 2022, Julieta took its first steps in our rehearsal room and celebrated its premiere at the Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen in May. We are incredibly happy to finally present Julieta on our stage.
