Excitement and laughter of a theater night

“The focus was on the first protagonist, who entered with clumsy gait and broad smile. The clown “Gromic,” whose real name is Michael Gueulette-was responsible for the successful opening session of activities organized by the Municipal Huerta de San Vicente.

To him fell the responsibility of starting the first applause of an audience, however, at first seemed no opened to many jokes. Even in this situation the Belgian artist did the hardest thing in show business: he was able to make the audience laugh by using … nothing.

There lied and lies his success: he based his show on the use of very simple elements, no paraphernalia, equipment or colorful fireworks. His hands shaped an oddball toad eyes, brown great coat in the style of Sherlock Holmes served to represent multiple pieces of mime surprisingly fun, and his hat, tie and dress were enough to finish decorating a character who put the crowd on its feet, singing and dancing to catchy songs. Description: hands up, palms to the sky and shared happiness. Forming letters and mouths open to sing very loudly the first note of the chorus of “YMCA” by the Village People.

Amazing.”

Translated from Spanish

“The earth trembled and shook with laughter with Gromic (Magician – Clown) from Barcelona with a tidal wave of applause for the artist on Sunday. The kids loved Gromic .. The fathers have played the game with our magician clown. It was a beautiful show to finish the weekend .. Even with the Bimbadaboum festival that attracts the same audience, we took lots of children and families. My hope was realized: Disabled institutions have emerged, It is a pleasure of welcoming these fine people to offer them happiness through our shows, …”

“The second event was Máaagia! from Gromic, an eccentric magician from Spain with an irresistible comedy that has captivated audiences of all ages.

The audience was literally kidnapped from the qualities of the artist, and thanks to its incredible verve, Gromic (Michaël Gueulette) can immediately create an immediate contact with the public, not relying on the word, but only on its wonderful expressiveness.

To remember the sketch with a jacket, a coat, hands and faces of this insanely funny mime and comic, and the interactions with the public, as with children who refused to openly carry out his directions, threatening to ruin the gags, but with shooting great skill by Gromic. Or with adults, dressed as giant frog with a huge coat and a briefcase on his head, or turned into human solid chair that collapses by failing to hold a heavy (!) Balloon in hand.

So great success with applause and laughter Máaagia!, Which has really proved to be a show of high caliber international ready for the European theater.

Report from the Bradipoteatar for the International Theater Festival Calanchi

“Everything and the name, Maaagic! It is not a magic show. We could say that there is magic, but also a good dose of gestuality and, especially, an enormous respect for the world of the clowns.

Michael Gueulette, Gromic, presents a series of simple, naive, tender sketches, which often requires the assistance of the public, which, by the way, he uses with extreme subtlety. Maaagic! is the only word we will hear throughout the show, and this requires a very good presence on stage and especially rhythm.

With very few elements Michael Gueulette fills a long time during which he demonstrates us that he has has a good technique. A chair, a mic stand, a rack, a hat, a bag, a jacket and not much else is all that is needed to entertain us kindly. It is therefore a very clean performance.

Michaël Gueulette is Belgian and a few years ago that’s been between us. About what he does he calls it visual comedy, and his references are a guarantee for understanding his theatrical world: Avner, George Carl and Peter Shub.

I wish you could view him very soon, and that you can enjoy his tender and clean warmth presence on stage.”
