Safari en Tepito about

"It's 3 AM in the morning and I can not sleep because of the excitement. I think this concept needs a follow up in other communities. [...] My head is spinning; almost cured of purism and intellectual motivations, I want to hear the remaining six stories." - José Manuel Velasco, La Ciudad de Frente

Que bueno!! On 8 locations, in 8 houses, at 8 adoptive parents, the 8 Mexican actors are staying and living at the moment. Monica, Martín, Raúl, Silvia, Anilú, Diego, Raúl, Mayra, Alejandra, Julieta, Patricia, Irene, Ursula, Marina, Noé en Lourdes welcome us this year again! into their neighbourhood.

Because we fell in love with each other. After 'Safari en Tepito' spring 2014, we as well as out theatrical partner Daniel Giménez Cacho wanted to make the full performance as soon as possible. So: 2015 started with going back to the neighbourhood. In Januari Adelheid and Lauren sway through Tepito again to create a new play wich makes the Mexicans heads spin.

As a new compañera de la revolución Perla de la Rosa joins Adelheid Roosen and Daniel Giménez Cacho. In February and March they make hundreds of people co-drivers on the scooter to get in touch with the only international constant: the individual in society, always craving for a recognized place between each other. Hasta la vista in Safari and Tepito!

3 MARCH TO 27 APRIL 2014
WijkSafari crosses boundaries! During the summer of 2014, Adelheid and Titus taught students and graduates about WijkSafari at the Theatre school of Mexico City. Under the guidance of Daniel Giménez Cacho. They were adopted by the locals of the Tepito community, which led to some beautiful presentations aand asked for a follow up.

In January 2014, Titus returned to Mexico to help shaping the scènes of the performance. A little later, Adelheid jumped on a scooter to put the finishing touches on the project. From March 13 to 22, Safari en Tepito has played within the context of Festival del Centro Histórico. When the Festival ended, WijkSafari kept on playing untill the 27th of April 2014.
