Grandfather Tonet


The show

Grandfather Tonet is a show of non-verbal humour that pays a small and humble tribute to all grandmothers and grandfathers who are madly in love with their grandkids, and the memories of whom remain in children’s memories forever.

Combining humour and tenderness, this wonderful show uses various theatrical techniques: text, gesture, clown, handling of objects, games with the audience and a carefully-picked soundtrack. All of this will enable you to experience the memories of a grandson who had so much love for his grandfather: their first experiences together, how they spent their days, the places his grandfather took him, and the unforgettable days at his side; and you’ll also get to discover a very funny character: Grandfather Tonet.

Don’t miss this show and the opportunity to share a touching moment with your family!


The company

After twenty years of experience acting and creating with companies like Teiatru, Aceitera-Teiatru, Marcel Gros and Cia Chapertons, Jordi del Rio has embarked on a new solo journey and is opening the doors to his particular world, creating shows for all ages in which humour, imagination, emotions and playing with the audience are the common denominator.

Along the same lines as his first show called CLIC! -which premiered at the 2012 Mostra d’Igualada Theatre Festival and was very well-received, Jordi del Rio is now presenting his new project, also of his own creation: Grandfather Tonet.
