Memoria Chicha is a theatrical clown show performed by a clown actress. It is the story of a loom that does not advance, of a restless calm, of a destiny that is rewritten at every moment.


Memory rests in your threads, the one that tastes as shared infusion at sunset, the one that germinates in the rifts of the hands of the farmers, the one that silently keeps in the hairstyles marking the way home. To her they turn off the light, she is prefered quiet and speaking softly.


Today she wakes up bringing water, washing wounds, watering the earth, erasing borders. And we humanity made of clay start to disintegrate to return to the earth and reborn.


We focus on making a show to be shown in Latin American markets, this fact marked the pattern of language, rhythm and tone.


During the investigation we came across the art of the loom, which led us to the threads, and these to the time and the memory of the peoples.


In this way Memoria Chicha was born as a tribute to the memory of the people, to the history that does not live in the books but that nonetheless pulsates with force in the fields, the rivers, the stones, the markets, the kitchens, the trades , the stories, the songs and the dances.
