WINNER – Three Weeks Editors’ Award (Top 10 shows of the Edinburgh Fringe)
WINNER – CASA Festival Nuestra Award
This extraordinary, award-winning show returns once again to the Rosemary Branch after two sell-out runs.
Revolutionary, proto-feminist, underground spy and the beating heart of South American liberation, Manuela Saenz died in poverty, all but forgotten by the history books – until now.
Blending storytelling, physical theatre, comedy and live music, Lecoq-trained Tamsin Clarke brings Manuela’s story of love, loss and revolution vibrantly to life.
With accompaniment by Colombian musician and guitarist Camilo Menjura (UK Latin American Musician Of The Year 2014), Manuelita promises audiences a heart-swelling, toe-tapping night out at the theatre.
British-Venezuelan Clarke bursts on to stage all pent-up anger, frustration and passion…a wonderful, warm performance that will have you leaving the Underbelly on a high * * * * The Stage
Manuelita is a delight, presented by the energetic and winning Tamsin Clarke…her audience falls in love with both player and subject…* * * * British Theatre Guide
