Tango Sumo on La Plaza del Periodista

The French theatre troupe Tango Sumo performed this abstract play, called Expédition Paddock, on the Plaza del Periodista this afternoon. One of the actors, Denis, told me the play was a sort of allegory about prison and a psychiatric ward. 

But Denis said the purpose wasn't to be just negative.

"We want to have fun, too," he said.

The play was part of the two theatre festivals going on right now in Bogotá.

Dancing on the beds.

Lonely misery. 

Quite a crowd.
Reach for that photo!

The end!

Say cheese!
After the play, festival employees stand guard by the beds. 
As soon as the play ended, this guy appeared on the Plaza del Periodista and performed with fire.

Someone feels vulnerable.
