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

Perhaps, Perhaps... Quizás is a clown piece playing with the idea of loneliness, waiting and hoping for the “right man” in an era when nothing seems to impress anyone anymore and longing for “real love” seems to be the burden of our time. Greta, the protagonist, is a lonely woman who weekly rehearses the arrival of the so-called “one”. Will she get lucky?

Perhaps, Perhaps... Quizás premiered in New York in 2010 and has appeared at various clown and theatre festivals in America, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, Czech Republic, China, Finland, France, Georgia, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, New Zealand, Romania, Scotland, Spain, Sweden and the UK. Café des Artistes has the following description: “‘at once beautifully poignant as it is hilarious,’ Muñoz moves her audience through pathos to humor, keeping her audience on the edge of their seats as they move between her reality and her imagination”.

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

Gabriela Muñoz

Gabriela has a variety of experience in theatre, circus and opera. Based on these three disciplines, she created her own universe. She finished her studies at the London International School of Performing Arts (LISPA) based on Jacques Lecoq's pedagogy, following a two-year postgraduate course and a one-year course at the School of Physical Theatre in London. In 2010, she created Perhaps, Perhaps... Quizás, her first clown show.


In 2015—with the support of EFI TEATRO, INBA, and Co-Productions—she premiered her second creation, Limbo, in Mexico City. Limbo has appeared at the Teatro Milan and Teatro de la Ciudad Esperanza Iris in collaboration with Latin Grammy winners Natalia Lafourcade and Ernesto García. In 2016 she was part of the documentary Witkin on Witkin about Joel Peter Witkin’s Pollock Agonistes. In 2019 she created DIRT, which was nominated for a City Award for best show. And in 2020, as a celebration of her 10 years as a clown, she published a book—CHULA THE CLOWN—edited by Sicomoro Ediciones and awarded the National Prize of Graphic Arts. That same year she received a medal for international merit from the Congress of Mexico City in the field of Cultural Promotion.


She currently collaborates with conductor Alondra de la Parra in The Silence of Sound, a symphonic show for clown and orchestra that had its world premiere at Festival PAAX GNP in 2022. Her latest solo show Julieta, opened in May 2022 with the support of MICC (Marché International du Cirque Contemporain), FONCA and co-produced with Chamäleon Berlín, TOHU, and Ruhrfestpiele, Recklinghausen. Music in the show is a compilation of original songs by Natalia Lafourcade.
