The director, Rafael Ruíz has devised a show that recovers the spirit of funambulism with The Funamviolistas. This performance combines classical music, theatre, dance, singing and humour.
This performance aims to recover that genre that was created two centuries ago in Paris and rapidly spread throughout Europe. In Madrid, 600 shows were premiered a year. Therefore, it seeks to recreate a new version of a classic of the stage arts through three women who use the strings of their instruments to offer a performance filled with smiles and entertainment.
Three performers are in a square that could be of any city. This chance meeting changes their lives forever as they build a friendship that leads them to tell of their dreams, their disagreements, their joys and their hopes, without uttering a single word.
This show has done nothing else but accumulate acclaim and awards, namely the Performing Arts Max Award for the Best New Show 2014, the Award of the Association of the Performing Arts Association of Andalusia for the Best New Show 2015, the Talent Award 2013 for the Best Musical Show and the 16thCastile and Leon Fair Award for the Best Hall Show 2013.
