“With her whimsical aesthetic, Muñoz transports us to a magical world with her shows, performances, and visual artistry.” -The Guardian

“It is brave, it is well-crafted, it is side-splittingly funny, and it is sad. It is wonderful.” -Theatreview NZ

​”Exceptionally original. Extraordinarily funny.” -The Dominion Post NZ

​”Hilarious and heart wrenching, a crowning clowning achievement.”- Australian Stage

​”How hard is it to love a dreamer? We love Gabriela Muñoz.”-Kulturhuset Stockholm

If at first you don’t succeed, try again… and again… and again.

​Perhaps, Perhaps… Quizás is a heart-wrenching as well as hilarious clown piece playing with the idea of loneliness, the wait and hope for Mr. Right. In an era where nothing seems to impress one another anymore, the longing for “real love” seems to be the burden of our time. Greta, our protagonist, is a lonely woman who rehearses once a week the arrival of the so called ‘one’. Will she get lucky tonight? Perhaps, perhaps… quizas premiered in New York in 2010 and since then has been performed around the world to various clown and theatre festivals in New York, Brazil, Colombia, Georgia, France, Spain, UK and Sweden. Described as “at once beautifully poignant as it is hilarious” Munõz moves her audience through pathos to humour, keeping her audience on the edge of their seats as they move between her reality and her imagination (Café des Artistes).

“Perhaps, Perhaps…Quizas” is a part of Physical Theater Festival an international, contemporary, visual and physical theater festival that happens in Chicago every year. In 2024 the festival will happen from July 13 to 21.
