Harsh, humorous and sweet, Carnaval is a journey involving the stories of different children from all over the world who have survived situations that were brutal, violent and unjust. Told innocently but with the incredible resilience and directness of children, these stories reveal experiences and emotions that are part of the vicious circle of poverty, violence and abandonment that constantly causes them hurt. In carnivals, time stands still, hierarchies disappear and a catharsis occurs. Under this premise, the play hurtles along powerfully, with live music, singing, dancing and humor connecting the different stories, which also act as a kind of salve for the neglect suffered. Written and directed by Trinidad González, Carnaval is a collage of sad and outrageous situations from a reality we all form part of.
