The show

¡A PESCAR! (Let's Fish!)

One day, while fishing, the main character in this story plunges into the water, attracted to the bottom of the sea, and discovers a new world. Do you want to discover it with him? Let yourself get carried away by the magic of this wordless show which is full of surprises, and delve into an underwater adventure!

The experiences of the protagonist will lead you to discover the native species that live on the seabed, and their encounters with non-native species will help you to reflect on the problems caused by pollution.

A proposal that, with clown techniques, shadow play and an attractive sound environment, will undoubtedly result in an enjoyable, fun and nice time with the family.

The company

El gecko con botas started out in Indonesia thanks to its members receiving a scholarship to learn traditional shadow puppet techniques there (Wayang Kull). Together, they participated in several festivals and were selected for Poble Espanyol’s Performing arts creation residency with the show Las sombras que cuentan cuentos and, later, in the Centro Cívico Can Felipa (Barcelona), with the play ¡A pescar! In addition, they have carried out community theatrical performances with local schools.
