Pull up an electric chair and witness the most shockingly over-the-top show in town, where nothing is sacred and everything is hysterically demented. One jail, four men and a whole lotta funny (dirty) antics make 666 the rudest, laugh-out-loud prison comedy you’ll ever see. The internationally acclaimed Yllana has wowed audiences all over the world. Who knew prison could be this much fun?
Splash! is a boundless journey into the unexpected. By way of visual theatre Yllana and the kids embark on a comic voyage where gales of laughter are roused by the most absurd and slapstick humor.
In Splash! Yllana form a curious crew of three roaming sailors lost in a storm of comic events. Bewildered characters that they offer us a punch of laughter, mime, music and ingenuity.
Splash! is the children’s version of Yllana’s show Glub-glub.
Olimplaff is a micro Olympics of fun and laughter where we can see how three extraordinary clowns try to compete as top-notch athletes in a world of high-class competition.
In their attempt to achieve fame and glory they try their luck in a wide variety of sports, only to encounter all sorts of unexpected obstacles, like weights that seem to have a life of their own, or like a finish line which somehow seems to have gone missing.
In this slapstick adventure of mime and music, the solemn world of the Olympics falls prey to hilarious antics and a complete, delightful and unforgettable disorder. Not to be missed! Great fun for all ages!.
PaGAGnini is anything but just a concert. The musicians play, dance, jump, laugh, cry, interact with the audience, converting the show into an original comedy where the violin and the cello transform themselves spontaneously into new and original instruments (guitars, mandolins, percussions…).
PaGAGnini’s own genius was a special referente during the creation of the show, not only in the title. His complex compositions, rash personality and amazingly talented interpretations reflect the spirit of PaGAGnini.
As well, a handful of memorable moments provide us with a new vision of the so called “classic contemporary music” of our days, such as U2 or the Frenchman Serge Gainsbourg.
Brokers, shows us the wild world of high finance in Yllana’s pure style. After 666 and Star Trip, Yllana enters the universe of luxury and money to show us how crazy, ridiculous and hilarious this world can be 666 and Star Trip, Yllana enters the universe of luxury and money to show us how crazy, ridiculous and hilarious this world can be.
The protagonists of Brokers are four businesses sharks looking for success in the era of consumerism. Luxury, fame, power, narcissism and status are their only interests. Fans of fashion brands, technology and the perfection of the human body, they discover their most hidden fears while achieving their economical success, making themselves look ridiculous and creating hilarious situations that will shake the basis of our capitalist society.
An extremely good soundtrack and a gorgeous staging complete this absurd, incredibly corrupt and depraved show, that will have even the most demanding audience in stitches.
Deep in the jungle, some intrepid and crazy explorers face a very silly adventure. Their mission is to capture an exotic animal that is going extinct for the ZOO of a large city.
The wacky antics of the protagonists lead into a visually stunning adventure in which the apparently idyllic surroundings become a trap crawling with strange animals. Birds, mammals, reptiles and insects soon make life impossible for the heroes of the expedition.
Yllana has created another spectacular show for all the family, bringing his personal comic vision of the world to the eternal conflict between man and nature. Continuing its quest to investigate the theatre of mime further, in Zoo the company looks more deeply at the boundaries between man and animal and the recreation of savage nature, ideas that have been in other shows by YLLANA, although always as isolated elements.
In Zoo no-one can escape from the clutches of laughter.
Let the adventure begin!
IIn 2011 Yllana is 20 years old and hasn’t let out a peep about it. In 1991 a group of young enthusiasts got a theatre project up and running which we could never have imagined even in our wildest dreams to take us this far. This can largely be put down to Muu, our first show.
Muu is a satire about the world of bullfighting, the sense of honor, the macho posturing, the bravery, the motherland, the national festival and animal cruelty… And all those sacred, indomitable values involved in a rite which, well into the 21st century, pits man against beast in the manner of the Roman circus. Twenty years after its premier the controversy surrounding bullfighting rages on stronger than ever.
In the show the distinguishing features of company can already be seen in embryonic form: the awareness of comedy, the sense of rhythm, the use of sound as an extra character, it’s very direct style, the roguish attitude of its production, the make-up of the characters… The show soon became an unexpected success.
This is how we discovered the universality of our humor. Something that began as a local phenomenon soon brought us recognition inside and outside our borders. We started a world tour at the invitation of the most prestigious international humor festivals like Just for laughs in Canada, the Edinburgh Fringe, the Festival of Arts of Istanbul and the Festival Printemps des Courges de Toulouse where the show was awarded the Courge D’Or.
Today we would like to revisit Muu to recover the essence of this company and the pleasure of reliving, without nostalgia, that lively spirit which drove us to create. But also, to share with the public which discovered Yllana in 666, PaGAGnini, Zoo or Brokers the principles on which our humor is based, with a revised, updated version in which, twenty years down the line, the experience is summarized with a lively, renewed approach in constant evolution.
Apacific and simple farmer is waiting for his fiancée in a dusty train station in the far, far west. But before they can kiss each other, two very bad outlaws sequester her. Our weird hero will try everything to rescue her, while the girl will discover new feelings that she couldn’t have ever imagined before and which will turn her into a real heroin.
Welcome to Far West, Yllana’s first trip into the Western’s genre. Thanks to the adventure of our anti-heroes, we will enter a wild world with no laws, where we will enjoy Indian tribes, deadly saloons, dangerous deserts, sunny duels, big persecutions and, according to the best Western movies, lots of action.
With this new show Yllana pays tribute to the Western movies that stimulated and encouraged our imagination making us play a lot. And at the same time Yllana honors its heroes, peasants, borders and those men who dared to challenge it.
Agroup of ruthless GaGnsters terrorize the city. After them, a group of insane policemen intend to stop them, at all costs with unforeseen hilarious consequences.
The new show of Yllana starts with this premise, a tribute to ¨film noir¨, full of delusional situations of dark comedy, theatrical inventiveness and the gestural trademark is the company´s code.
A hilarious trip to the underworld and the lowest of instincts, without exemption of critics and reflection between good and evil.
The show hefs is a funny way to see the fascinating world of gastronomy. The story is focused on a very prestigious chef who has lost his inspiration and has to trust a goofy team of cooks to create a spectacular and innovating recipe to maintain the stars of his restaurant.
At the same time Yllana is travelling through different stages of the cooking world, such as our natural instinct to eat, animals that feed us, different cuisines and tastes all over the world. We will see the chefs’ egos, the competition between the “best chefs” and, in general, everything that can be cooked in Yllana’s hilarious pot.
Yllana and Primital Bros join together to surprise you with a hilarious ‘a capella’ musical comedy. Four native people of a planet very similar to the planet Earth go on stage ready to seduce the audience (either with laughs or knives) by overflowing them with many different genres of music that they learnt thanks to their travels out of space and time. The Primitals… the strange and surrealistic story of a slightly dysfunctional tribe with internal fights, grandiose delusions, mental instability and millenary pharmacopoeia Shamanism with four voices. A capella tragical comedy. Ancestral vanguardism. The Primitals is everything and much more than this.
The Best of Yllana reviews on stage the “greattest hits” of the company, with a selection of the best sketches of our shows. The Best of Yllana is a hilarious show that will make reality the dream of Yllana ́s fans of enjoying the funniest gags of the company all together in an unique show. Cheers and to 25 years more! Let ́s rock! Let ́s Yllana!
An unusual troupe of five eccentric opera singers are about to perform a repertoire of the greatest composers of their genre. Throughout the show, they each reveal to us their hidden passions and desires that will bring unpredictable and hilarious consequences. It will be a night to remember!
The Opera Locos is a comic opera show where five exceptional lyrical singers perform some of the most well-known opera hits sometimes combined in a clever and original way with rock and pop classics. The Opera Locos wants to push opera closer to a general audience in a new, fresh and original way, with high standards in technique and overall artistic discipline. The show integrates a variety of opera numbers with Yllana’s physical comedy to create a truly spectacular experience for audiences of all ages.
Gag Movie is fantasy in the making. It brings together the crafts of theatre and film in a dazzling and vibrant fashion, it’s almost an art form of its own. Watch our four charming stars pay tribute to moving pictures. See them transcend the realms of the screen to stage a fun, hilarious and dynamic experience that… behold!… will pass before your eyes at “light speed” frames per second. Dare not miss it!
Four enigmatic movie stars find themselves trapped within the confines of a single picture frame. For how much longer? Years frozen in time, only the warmth and eagerness of a live, film loving audience can free them, and set in motion the magic.
Cast the spell, movie lovers, “Lights! Camera! Action!”, and summon forth the stars of the night. See them burst magically onto stage, blending the arts of film and theatre, and embarking us all on a hilarious and truly enchanting journey through some of the most iconographic moments of cinematic art.
We Love Rock is a tribute-performance-concert that is based on the vision of a radio announcer – a browser of the waves – and at the hands of whom we will embark on an exciting journey through some of the mythical songs that have nourished the collective memory of generations and generations of good music lovers.
A Made in Yllana show in which humour, music, fun, nostalgia, fantasy and audience participation (at 33, 45 or 2000 RPM) will delight everyone who’s spent a good part of their lives in the zone beyond time and space glued to a radio, a record player or creating their Spotify lists to share them.
Three voices, one rock band, four dancers and a vast ocean of sensations ahead of you. If you loved We Love Queen, you can’t miss We Love Rock.
Maestrissimo is an «allegro e molto vivace» show, which comes halfway between a chamber concert, satirical comedy, and a portrayal of the times. In sheer Yllana style, it illustrates the adventures and misfortunes of a string quartet round about the 17th and 18th centuries (Baroque and Neoclassicism).
A supporting-act musician —a nobody, but with immense talent— seeks to climb the ladder and achieve the title of maestrissimo. Will his talent and brilliance be enough to make a name for himself in such a hierarchical world? Will he achieve the prestige he rightfully deserves?
Along the same lines as Pagagnini, but with a separate entity, Maestrissimo will delight us with ever so carefully selected aesthetics and hilarious characters. It is a comedy which tackles such topics as ethics, creation, originality and the value of art in society, at the same time as it recaps key moments of classical music.
Greenpiss is an ECO-ILLOGICAL Mess. A hilarious satire on ecology, the future of our planet and the survival of our own species. Global warming (on top of the abusive use of plastics, rampant consumerism, the extinction of thousands of animal species, and the possible extinction of our own…) is the starting point of this new theatrical madness brought to you by Yllana.
Four actors in a state of grace take on a topic which is on everyone’s lips, performing countless characters, from politicians to penguins. Yllana clearly has the solution: caustic humour free of barriers which is sure to leave no one indifferent.
Four crazy sailors look a bit disoriented… they have just one goal: to find a port where to board.
During their journey they will water ski, fish sharks, survive storms while bringing the audience through the most absurd and different situations that have the fascinating sea world as their background.
What would happen if a street dog could suddenly talk like we do? And if this dog had an astonishing story that he wanted to share with us? Would you stop to listen to him or would you express that so-typically human disdain of those who believe animals don’t have anything to say? If you’re in the first group, then the time is long overdue for you to come and see us. If not, a tip: do us a favour and don’t be so sapiens. Sometimes a dog – if he’s lived a lot – can tell you things you can’t even begin to imagine. Because, despite what you may think, dogs too have their dog days when it doesn’t rain but it pours.
This project came to life at the request of Veranos de la Villa and is being created for the festival.
The famous orchestra director Josef Von Ramik, known for his bipolar personality, agrees to direct the prestigious Royal Orchestra, renowned for its unconventional frame of mind and exquisite execution.
Together, they will perform a repertoire of the great classics from the history of classical music. But he’s not the only one invited. To mix things up a bit more for the evening, the world-famous orchestra leader and violinist Gaspar Krause will also be invited, notorious for his enormous and intolerable ego.
The stage will soon become a battlefield, in a power struggle to see who’s most excellent of them all, which will lead to hilarious and unpredictable consequences. But one thing is clear: this will be a concert to remember.
Yllana has been travelling since their early beginning. During these travels we have been facing a lot of very silly and funny situations that we wanted to reflect in a show.
Passport is the story of 4 comedian on tour in a country called Komedistan.
They will cope with problems when going through costums entering the country, language issues at a restaurant and an horrible hotel where they have to sleep before and after their perfomance. It’s like an overview of the whole experience of working abroad.
Passport is a tribute to the artists’ life when they cross borders with the main goal to make people laugh wherever they are.

An extraordinary Ballet Flamenco Español event. Spanish artists bring an explosive show based on combining traditional flamenco elements with modern ones in a complex music and dance performance.
The show is structured in treiparti, each having the role of representing another side of Spanish dance.
The first part is called “Bolero” and represents an outcry between classical Spanish dance and flamenco. A style studied in detail, where force, rhythm changes and light play predominate.
The second part is called Mozart’s Zapate. This one is performed by one or two soloists who play the richness of musical accents, against the times and syncopes specific to an atmosphere of sound.
The last part of the show is called Flamenco in Live. Choreography is inspired by the unrelated union of flamenco. On the one hand, there are elements of aesthetic nature, and on the other hand expressive elements. They have the power to convey the pure essence of flamenco dance. In this part of the show will be presented moments in which the vivacity and the rhythm are prevailing, as well as the harmonious blending of the traditional elements with the modern elements.
Il Ballet Flamenco Español è un evento straordinario. Gli artisti spagnoli portano in scena un esplosivo spettacolo basato su una meravigliosa combinazione tra elementi tradizionali del flamenco ed elementi moderni, con un risultato composto da musica estremamente raffinata e incredibili performance di danza.
Lo spettacolo è strutturato in tre parti, ognuna delle quali rappresenta un aspetto diverso della danza spagnola.
La prima parte, “Bolero”, è un connubio tra la danza classica spagnola e il flamenco, dove forza, ritmo e giochi di luce sono amalgamati e studiati fino ai minimi dettagli.
La seconda parte è “Zapateado a Mozart”. Questo è eseguito da uno o due solisti che, su una ricca tavolozza di accenti musicali, contrattempi e sincopi, creano un’atmosfera musicale unica.
L’ultima parte dello spettacolo è “Flamenco Live”. La coreografia, ispirata anch’essa dal multiforme flamenco, unisce a elementi di natura estetica una forte espressività, in un continuo alternarsi di elementi tradizionali e moderni.
STATE RUSSIAN FOLK DANCE COMPANY.
Artistic Director: Mira Koltzova.
Russian Folk Dance Company since 1948.
The world famous State academic choreographic ensemble «Beryozka» («The Birch») was founded in 1948 by one of the most outstanding choreographers of the 20th century — Nadezhda Nadezhdina. Being a person of the highest culture and erudition, she knew well, what riches are concealed in the creativity of the Russian people, and perceived it like a poet.
In her creations Nadezhda Sergeyevna imparted poetry of an ancient round dance to the classical dance, connecting the past to the present. The maiden round dance, composed by her to the sound of the Russian national song «Vo pole beryozka stoyala» («In the field the Birch stood») has been bewitching the audience by the exotic, «floating» step, making an impression that girls stand still, and the scene under them rotates, for nearly 70 years. In the face of the viewer the whole birchwood suddenly comes to life and appears in solemnly stately parade. Soon the well-known round dance gave the name to the ensemble, in which Nadezhda Nadezhdina made her dream come true — devoted herself to creation her own scenic works on a national basis.
Subsequently the brand step was used in many round dances of the ensemble. According to the press, during the years of concert activities of «Beryozka», dancers of the ensemble has walked the distance exceeding the equator length with the «floating» step.

SOCIETÀ DI DANZA POPOLARE RUSSA DI STATO.
Direttore artistico: Mira Koltzova.
Compagnia di danza popolare russa dal 1948.
L’ensemble coreografico statale di fama mondiale «Beryozka» («La betulla») è stato fondato nel 1948 da Nadezhda Nadezhdina Sergeyevna, una delle più importanti coreografe del XX secolo, che nella sua altissima cultura conosceva tutte le ricchezze celate nella creatività del popolo russo.
Nelle sue creazioni Nadezhda ha unito la poesia dell’antica danza circolare alla danza classica, collegando il passato al presente. Il primo round dance, composto da lei al suono della canzone nazionale russa «Vo pole beryozka stoyala» («Nel campo in cui si trovava la betulla») ha stregato il pubblico con il suo fluttuante passo esotico, dando l’impressione che le ragazze stiano ferme e la scena sotto di loro ruoti. Di fronte allo spettatore l’intero bosco di betulle prende improvvisamente vita e appare in una sfilata solennemente maestosa. Ben presto il noto ballo circolare ha dato il nome al gruppo, in cui Nadezhda Nadezhdina ha realizzato il suo sogno: la creazione delle proprie coreografie su musiche nazionali.
Secondo la stampa, durante gli anni di attività concertistica di «Beryozka», i ballerini dell’ensemble hanno percorso con il loro passo fluttuante una distanza superiore alla lunghezza dell’equatore.

Celtic Legends ti offre, al 100% dal vivo, la danza tradizionale, la musica e le canzoni irlandesi, uno spettacolo che ha già celebrato 10 avventurosi anni di tour in tutto il mondo. Lo spettacolo nasce nelle terre selvagge e incontaminate del Connemara, in Irlanda, nel 2001, creato da una piccola squadra di giovani talenti di Galway con un’enorme reputazione per il loro contributo alla musica e alla danza irlandesi. La musica tradizionale irlandese, unisce alcuni degli strumenti nazionali più amati dagli Irlandesi: il violino con i suoi virtuosi mulinelli, il Bodhran che batte frenetici ritmi, l’Uilleann pipe che richiama arie lente e inquietanti. Senza dimenticare quelle ballate gravi e commoventi cantate come un sussurro al vento.
Con brillanti sprazzi di velocità i ballerini salgono sul palco. Tutti loro si esibiscono sin dalla tenera età, hanno vinto molti campionati del mondo e hanno realizzato tournée con spettacoli come Riverdance e Lord of the Dance. La danza irlandese sta godendo in questi ultimi anni uno strepitoso risveglio, grazie anche a questi show irlandesi. Ma Celtic Legends è una vera esperienza immersa nella cultura irlandese.

The very word Cossack in Russian means ‘free man.’ In the early czarist times they staged revolts of the masses against the oppressive orders; they staged uprisings of serfs and workers against the injustices of the ruling classes. They had heroes, and they wanted to be free. Our songs and dances reflect all this.
It was more than 50 years ago – in 1936 – that the Don Cossacks Company was founded in Rostov, the southern port and rail hub on the Don River, one of the four largest rivers in the Soviet Union. Its aim was to preserve the rich and colorful folklore of the Cossack people, who, out of some 180 different Soviet ethnic groups, have a strong tradition of expressing themselves in song and dance.
The men, in particular, have strong, vibrant voices; many Russian choirs have a large complement of Cossacks in their ranks. It is said that the dances of the Don River region sprang directly out of the Cossack songs commemorating famous battles and the rebellions of folk heroes, as well as the more peaceful side of Cossack life – songs dealing with family, the beauty of nature, the joys of love.
Cossack dances range from the elegant to the athletic, from the lyrically romantic to the flirtatious and droll. The basic Cossack dance is the kazatchok, which begins slowly and ends fast and furious. There is the exhilarating hopak, with its leg-stretching and high jumps, and the khorovod, the Russian form of a round dance. In the Don Cossack company, it is the men who execute the high-jumping, wildly energetic dances, while the women negotiate the more lyrical numbers.
La parola cosacco, in russo, significa “uomo libero”. Nei primi tempi degli zaristi essi organizzarono rivolte delle masse contro gli ordini oppressivi e contro le ingiustizie delle classi dominanti. Avevano degli eroi e volevano essere liberi. Le canzoni e le danze di questa compagnia riflettono tutto questo.
Nel 1936 la Compagnia dei Cosacchi del Don fu fondata a Rostov, porto meridionale e centro di interscambio ferroviario sul fiume Don, uno dei quattro fiumi più grandi dell’Unione Sovietica. Il suo scopo era quello di preservare il folclore ricco e colorato dei cosacchi che, su circa 180 diversi gruppi etnici sovietici, hanno una ricca tradizione di canti e danze.
Gli uomini, in particolare, hanno voci forti e vibranti, infatti molti cori russi hanno tra le loro fila componenti cosacchi. Si dice che le danze della regione del Don siano uscite direttamente dalle canzoni dei cosacchi per commemorare le famose battaglie e le ribellioni degli eroi popolari, così come il lato più pacifico della vita dei cosacchi: canzoni che parlano di famiglia, di bellezza della natura, di gioie d’amore.
Le danze cosacche spaziano dal gesto elegante a quello atletico, dallo spirito romantico a quello civettuolo e a quello buffo. La danza di base dei cosacchi è il kazatchok, che inizia lentamente e per finire veloce e furioso. C’è l’esaltante hopak, con le sue gambe che si allungano e i suoi alti salti, e il khorovod, la forma russa di danza circolare. Nella compagnia del Don Cossack, sono gli uomini che eseguono i balli più sfrenati ed energici, mentre le donne realizzano i numeri più lirici.
