They are a symbol and their absurd humor is the starting signal for our programming, Abubukaka returns to Mueca in style. Covacha Redoubt is the new show with which they intend to outrage, annoy and piss off the staff. A plebeian, tacky, vulgar, coarse and imperfect proposal that we will be able to enjoy the three nights of the Festival in a very particular setting: the El Peñón Football Field. This enclave also becomes a solidarity space with the presence of NGOs and groups for which the Festival seeks to raise funds. Ready to laugh? Find out here everything you want to know about Abubukaka and his scoundrel Covacha Redoubt.
What will Abubukaka surprise the Mueca audience with?
Well, with the usual but like never. We are going with a new show like in the last five years and all the sketches try to add novelties while maintaining the essence of what we believe people expect from Abubukaka.
What is Covacha Redoubt?
We could say that it is the village of Asterix and Obelix.
What does it mean for Abubukaka to see that his shows are one of the most anticipated in Mueca?
It fills us with pride and satisfaction... Every year we look forward to the dates of Mueca to receive all the energy that the festival transmits.
Don't stop laughing with Abubukaka
Thursday, Friday and Saturday 9:30 p.m. | El Peñón Soccer Field
Do you perceive the fear on the part of institutional programmers to program Abubukaka in their spaces?
No… we perceive that some prefer other types of proposals and period, fear no, different tastes yes.
A posteriori, what has the controversy of Christ served them for?
For sure, positive and negative publicity, and for motivation. Realizing that what we do matters to many people, for better or for worse, motivates us.
What does censorship mean in your company jargon?
Usually… boring people.
What is intelligent humor for Abubukaka?
Of everything that happens daily in Spain, what subject would Abubukaka choose for a sketch?
Of those who do not appear in Reducto Covacha the centrality of the board, which comes to mean "Neither chicha nor lemon".
What is the company's next project?
We will premiere the show in mid-2019 and between now and then we will come up with something else.
What X-ray do they make of the theater made in the Canary Islands?
We can't see everything we'd like because it practically always catches us acting, but from what we know we believe that what can be seen in that X-ray is that theater in the Canary Islands happens because there are many people as crazy as they are necessary who one by one You have to tell them: Thank you.
Is it very difficult for Abubukaka to make the leap to the Peninsula?
Not giving it, making it profitable is another matter. In recent years we have acted regularly in the peninsular territory and the experience has been very satisfactory, but economically what is eaten is what is served. We will continue jumping but because we are acrobats.
What is the path that awaits Covacha Redoubt?
Hopefully long and flowery. For now we will try to resist the harassment of the Romans with the invaluable help of our magic potion: you.
