The Repugnant Story of Clotario Demoniax

(Click the images to see a larger version)

Clotario is a psychopath who murders his rival to posses a woman he doesnąt truly love. But in this magical puppet setting, his diabolical cruelty is cause for hilarious laughter. This Clotario is a decidedly south-of-the-border incarnation of the loveable puppet known in Italy as Pulcinella and in England as Punch. In this wonderful production, conceived by extraordinary third generation puppeteer Pablo Cueto, and featuring a text by noted Mexican author Hugo Hiriart, the spirit of the classic Pulcinella lives!
