Don Quixote at Physical Festival Chicago

The 5th annual Festival of Physical Theatre presents “The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha” by Little Soldier productions.

The 5th annual Physical Festival presents nine days of physical theatre programming, featuring four shows from around the world, a hometown master, master classes with international guest artists, and a Scratch Night featuring new short works from local performers. The 5th edition of this contemporary, visual, and physical theater festival includes the performing of The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, by the company Little Soldier productions.

The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha

Two feisty señoritas and a downtrodden Englishman embark on a journey through Spain, taking on one of the most accomplished works of fiction ever written: Don Quixote. Accompanied only by an otherworldly guitarist whose presence there makes no sense whatsoever, they will lead you to joy, pain and ultimate wisdom. A madcap rendition concluding with a common sentiment: “These guys did not read the book.”

About Little Soldier Productions

With a three-quarters Spanish, three-quarters female and a token English Bloke, Little Soldier sets of to re-enact one of the most influential works of world literature. Their mammoth task would be easier if any of the following were true: they’d read the book, had enough actors or heeded the warnings of Terry Gilliam. This critically acclaimed production continues to have the company’s trademarks: combination of languages, live music and physical comedy. In this occasion, they present a truly engaging and hilarious show that has been charming audiences across the UK and abroad.
