Mandragora Circus, an Argentinian play written and directed by Juan Cruz Bracamonte, is one of the more prominent plays that will be staged at the festival. Revolving around the life of two circus clowns, the mimed play unveils the subject of love with heartfelt comedy. “The play has been showcased in three different continents and has received rave reviews. It uses acrobatics, circus stunts and unconventional instruments to display an earnest story. Mandragora Circus is unlike any other theatre plays and will be a treat to those who have only experienced and watched a certain type of physical theatre,”

Argentine Clowns tour the territory
Have been performing across the continent since 2010. They are currently in the Yukon, with upcoming performances in Dawson City from Aug. 14-17 and in Watson Lake on Sept. 6. After four years on the road and more than 50,000 kilometres tacked onto their van, two Argentine clowns are now traversing the territory, bringing their performance to the communities.
The universal language of their performance pulls viewers into the show. In Atlin, fans crowded into the tent at the main stage on Sunday morning, laughing off any weariness from the weekend as it came to a close. They performed for an hour, showcasing an explosion of circus skills, including aerial acrobatics on tissue and trapeze, as a mixed audience of children and adults cheered along. That, ultimately, is the goal.
