Don Quixote disembarks this Friday at the International Street Art Festival, Mueca, in Puerto de la Cruz. The hidalgo knight arrives in the municipality of Porto as the protagonist of a show of theatre, live music, movement and aerial acrobatics under the umbrella of the Valencian company Puja.

The company explains, through acrobatics and dramaturgical techniques, the inner journey of this literary hero and his faithful squire, going through the most significant episodes of the novel. Quixote is a hero and a guide who travels through a world that suffers from crisis and broken values.

The work, premiered in 2016 to coincide with the fourth centenary of the death of Miguel de Cervantes, will be staged Friday and Saturday at 9:30 p.m., in the Espacio Aqualia Muelle 2

Until Mueca will also arrive this Friday the Chilean mime Karcocha.

This modern harlequin will stage the show `El coche´ starting at 8:00 pm in the Espacio Avenida.

The streets of Puerto de la Cruz will once again be filled with acrobatics and smiles. Barto, among others, will be in charge of this, a likeable character from Belgium who jumps on stage willing to please the public using technical resources and comic skills.
