A GOLPE DE CALCETÍN is a project that brings to the stage the short novel for children by the writer Francisco Hinojosa through the theater of masks and objects and live music produced by Idiotas Teatro and 25 Production, which has been dedicated since its inception to the creation of shows for young audiences.
This staging is built from the drama of the actor, using the poetics of the clown and the mask to bring this literary text to dramatic action. An oneiric world that places us in the first half of the 20th century in Mexico City accompanied by sound and visual landscapes that recover the longing for the years of yore. The staging proposal is designed as we have done in previous productions by Cristian David and Fernando Reyes Reyes who together with the other members create the collective staging accompanied by objects that come to life.
Paco Poyo is a boy of 12 years old; after being forced to drop out of school as a result of the economic crisis facing the working class in the post-revolutionary era; he walked the streets of Mexico City selling newspapers "at the stroke of a sock". One day, a mysterious character offers him to buy all his newspapers in exchange for doing him a little favor, but Paco never imagined that an apparently easy and fun mission would lead him to appear in the headlines of the newspapers he sold.
