Perhaps Perhaps Quizás (Gabriela Muñoz in association with Aurora Nova)

By | Published on Monday 21 August 2017

Perhaps you have felt lonely. Perhaps you’ve sat at home wondering just when “the one” is going to jump out of the pages of a gossip magazine and into your life. Perhaps you’ve even felt lonely enough to don a white dress, fabricate a church aisle from a roll of toilet paper, and hum Mendelssohn’s wedding march (“da, da, de da-da dum dum …”). That’s the set-up for Gabriela Muñoz’s wordless solo clown act, in which her character, who would be pitiable if she weren’t so wickedly funny, turns a member of the audience into the squirming Mr Right. Muñoz combines manic energy with genuine emotion; the result is raucous, ebullient fun. Who knew loneliness could be such a laugh?

Assembly George Square Theatre, until 28 Aug.
