Elefantes is the sixth production of the Idiotas Teatro company. It premiered in April 2016 at the La Capilla Theater thanks to the program of artistic residencies granted by this same venue, with a first season of 12 performances. Later in 2017, he successfully performed at the Sergio Magaña Theater with a season of 12 performances.

This show poses a journey as a metaphor of existence. Everything happens in a hot air balloon stuck with a retired pilot (the father) and a single passenger (the daughter), an uncertain destination and the trip itself.




Elephants tells the story of a pilot of balloon balloons who was about to take a trip to the arrival of a passenger who becomes his flight attendant. This trip becomes a pretext that goes maės allaė of the necessities of a simple journey because they manage to reconcile with a past that has united them all their lives.

It is an independent Mexican company under the artistic direction of Cristian David and Fernando Reyes Reyes, which since 2009 has been dedicated to the creation of small format shows for the whole family. The company's proposal is to take the actor back as a creative axis; based mainly on the experimentation of the clown technique in classical and contemporary works of different styles and genres that also allow creating new dramatics from the actor-creator; using as a complement to the acting language the music and the corporal gesture.

Idiotas Teatro has participated in important national and international festivals such as the Latino International Theater Festival of New York, the Cervantino International Festival, the Young Theater International Encounter in Seville (Spain), the International Latin Theater Festival in Dallas (Texas), National Theater Exhibitions in Mexico representing Oaxaca, among others. It has benefited from important federal support granted by the National Fund for Culture and the Arts in various programs, winner of the Fiscal Stimulus for National Theater Production in Mexico (EFITEATRO), Theater Program for Children and Young People of the INBA, Theater System from the city of Mexico, among others.

He has received international recognition by the HOLA (Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors, NY in 2012), as best guest performance by the Association of Broadcasters of Spectacles (ACE) of New York in 2013, nominated for best production for his montage Paėjaro ( ACE) in New York in 2013, nomination to the awards of the Agrupació de Criėticos y Periodistas de Teatro AC (ACPT) and first place in the Youth Award of the City of Meėxico 2016.
