The Funny Funeral
Corteo portrays the story of a clown acted by Mauro Mozzani, who experiences death but his spirit is still in this world. Instead of mourning, his friends celebrate the clown’s life during and after the funeral. The show is ironic to the norms because the funeral is full of laughter, enthusiasm and extravagance which make it a captivating story for the audience.
In the beginning, the show took place in a big top tent but later expanded into an arena production. The stage is double sided and is placed in the center to give a 360 degree view, with performers mingling with the audience making it an intimate show.
The characters are diverse and include a variety of those played by the Clown with a stark difference of light and darkness making the Angels clearly visible. There will be actors, comedians, acrobats and musicians who make this show glorious. It kicks off with the death of the clown and transits into a swing from chandeliers by three artists. The clown is standing below in spirit and looks up with wonder in his eyes.
Corteo has different acts including “Bouncing Beds”, “Hula-Hoop”, “Acrobatic Ladder” and “Tournik” among others. Each act takes the audience through a journey of the dead clown’s life, from childhood to his work in the theater, gaining wisdom and spreading love. The show comprises of almost 51 cast members. According to the Artistic Director Mark Shaub, the clown on his death bed sees all the characters he has played in life while keeping the audience thinking if he is acting, dead or living a dream.
Let your imagination go wild with Cirque Du Soleil Corteo Cedar Rapids IA tickets. The clown has spent his life in merrymaking so his funeral is a festive occasion that continues his legacy rather than making people sad.
