Protagonist in "El hermano de Sancho"
El hermano de Sancho es una fantasía teatral que propone un divertimento didáctico. Una comedia libérrima que mezcla situaciones y personajes de dos grandes dramaturgos del siglo XVI con humildes propuestas delirantes.
El juguete teatral está servido. Shakespeare y Cervantes. Magia y humor. Títeres, sombras, clown, comedia del arte y entremés son los ingredientes para un espectáculo trepidante e ingenioso donde se enseñan, divertidas, las truculencias del teatro. Un lugar donde todo puede hacerse tan real como te permita la imaginación. Como en los libros.
