From mythological and philosophical places, and from the exploration of Albano Beirão's character, Rui Paixão questions his place as a clown, but also the public as an audience and, eventually, as a clown as well. Notion (and fear) of ridicule we all have, but maybe it's possible to find reasons to laugh in discomfort. Taking off, not wearing, the mask. In this creation, premiered in 2021, Rui Paixão confronts the viewer with stereotyped images that are part of our imagination when we talk about clowns, changing them by adulterating and confronting them with texts and intentions that expand the meaning of the word “clown”.
