From June 13 to 15, La petita malumaluga presents the show Marceline at the Matadero in Madrid, which pays tribute to a key figure in 20th century performance art. Through the eyes of her great-granddaughter, the public will discover the story of a pioneering woman who broke barriers. Marceline Orbés was born in Aragón in 1873 and established the lines of the modern clown language in London. She was Charles Chaplin’s teacher and Buster Keaton’s reference. She filled both shows daily at the Hypodrome in New York, the largest theater in the world, where she was the main star. A few years later, cinema appeared, and theaters were no longer temples of entertainment. Some, like Charles Chaplin, knew how to adapt, and others like Marceline had a tragic end and fell into complete oblivion. Eva is her great-granddaughter and ever since she was conscious she has wanted to get on stage. No one had ever spoken to her about Marceline, until her grandmother, in the last years of her life, explained her origins and the reasons why her parents wanted to make her give up starting an artistic career.
