CLOWN - Music

“to make the audience participate in our creativity and awaken their own”.


Based on improvisation, the show grows and adapts to its audience with every performance of the Papanatas Band

We conceived of this street theater company as the bond that unites us to all kinds of audiences. We offer accessible creations, with simple forms, aiming to adapt us to everything and everybody. Based on the idea of a show that evolves with its audience, we create flexible forms, deconstructing in order to reconstruct. It is the art en motion that is nourished by the encounter between audience and characters.

This exchange process of proximity and discovery is the path to in the end open the street theater. The music and clown for everybody, to make the audience participate in our creativity and awaken their own.

"Simple and efficient method, using good skills to lead the audience to the laughing. A show where music, dancing, clown, arts of clown and good mood are combined as a perfect cocktail that capture and enjoy yourself."
"Street art in its funniest way. The duet from Barcelona entertains the audience through simple methods but in strongly comic ways pushing the audience to participate into the show."
