Yllana’s “The Gagfather”

Some of my favourite event photos of 2014 included the Galician theatre company Sobre Rodas performing at Festival Internacional de Teatro Cómico da Maia, but this year I wasn’t quite so lucky: the main event — a Madrid theatre company named Yllana — was indoors. I couldn’t walk around with the camera, the lighting was tricky, and our seats weren’t all that close. Instead of photos of them dressed as monsters and gangsters pulling silly scenarios in their “Gagfather” show, I only have photos of them during the exit. It’s a shame, because Yllan’s show was pure physical comedy, with plenty of bawdy references to every bodily fluid there is…

Yllana’s “The Gagfather”

I have more photos of the opening act, which was outdoors: Trupe Manducare of Teatro em Caixa (“Theatre in a Box”) from Portugal. The main character’s Portuguese monologue was far too fast for me to follow along, but they drew a large crowd and kept everyone entertained with just a couple of instruments and telling stories.
