JOJO

JOJO, the company’s second show, is a beautiful proposal of visual poetry, without any text. It narrates an incredible adventure using sand, a common technique for the Ytuquepintas company, and puppets, combining both techniques.

The music, especially composed for this show and performed live, adds the finishing touch to JOJO, a very appealing show for all ages.

The company chose the name JOJO in memory of the first orangutan to be rescued from captivity, which gave rise to the beginning of the International Animal Rescue project, a non-governmental organisation that works to save animals from the suffering caused by living in captivity, promotes their rehabilitation and when possible, reintroduces them into their natural habitat.

JOJO is still alive today and is a large male orangutan.

PRESS

“Hay un profundo mensaje ecologista que clama contra la desaparición de los orangutanes, y de tantas otras especies animales que día a día nuestra civilización depredadora elimina.

Un mensaje que se suma a este clamor general por la conservación de la naturaleza y de nuestros colegas en el Reino Animal. Eliminar a las demás especies, ¿no es poner en peligro a la nuestra, suprimiendo los diferentes eslabones que sustentan nuestra existencia? Obviedades que sin embargo en lo colectivo somos incapaces de asumir”.
