    Operación Clown Cállate (Shut Up!)

    Presented by at Texas Performing Arts at The University of Texas at Austin- McCullough Theatre

    September 15 - September 16, 2010


    Operación Clown Cállate (Shut Up!)

    Presented in partnership with the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies

    Texas Performing Arts presents two evenings of unique theatre from Veracruz, Mexico. Operación Clown is renowned for their innovative use of masks, puppets, and cabaret theatre based on theatrical clown technique.

    This internationally celebrated theatrical group will bring the acclaimed piece Cállate to the McCullough stage. Narrated with an explosive mixture of melodrama and irreverent humor, this love story set at the time of the Mexican Revolution combines drama, comedy, wrestling and images inspired by the Golden Age of Mexican cinema to fuel a cast of characters based on stereotypes of the period.

    “Actually, there are just two things you’ve got to know: the title means "shut up" and the show is so wildly funny that that's the one thing it's impossible to do." -- On Stage Scotland
