Un vache de manège

Merry-go-round. Street Theatre

Our friends in the French company, Théâtre de la Toupine, are also bringing a very special merry-go-round to Matadero Madrid. It’s a herd of ten cows no less, and they’ve all just left the barn and can’t wait to share their fantastic world with us. The aeroplane cow, the angel cow, the bee cow, the rocket cow and five others; truly amazing contraptions that sway move to the beat of the Orgameuh, a unique instrument made from cowbells and other bovine objects. To make the whole thing work, they need the help of parents and volunteers, who have to work - surprise! - to make the merry-go-round go round.


From 22 December to 3 January
From 11:30am to 2:30pm and from 4pm to 7pm

24 Dec, 25 Dec, 31 Dec & 1 Jan closed

To get on the merry-go-round you have to be aged between 2 and 6 years. If you’re between 18 and 99, you can help make it go round!
