Spain’s internationally acclaimed, multi award-winning comedy theater troupe Yllana (ee - YA - na) will make its long awaited Off-Broadway debut when Psycoductions (Juan Urrutia, Producer), with Executive Producer Aldo Scrofani, present 666, Yllana’s dirtiest and most demented show ever.
666 begins when three dangerous criminals (Fidel Fernandez, Joseph Michael O’Courneen and Juan Francisco Ramos Toro) and one misplaced innocent (Raul Cano) arrive on death row. Incarceration ironically sets free their wildest fantasies as, trapped between the iron gates and an electrified fence, they interact with each other and with the audience. At the end of all the comically bungled executions, all hell, quite literally, breaks out. No one is safe, least of all the audience! 666 is a rude and ribald collision between wordless Commedia dell’arte, physical theater, and slapstick.
About the Company: Yllana
One of Europe’s most talked about and acclaimed comedy theater troupes, Yllana has played throughout the world, and in their native Spain where their year-round theater, The Alfil, presents the company’s many original works (666 has been a popular sold-out attraction at the Madrid venue for over 10 years). Yllana was born in 1991 as a physical comedy theatre company. Through gestures, sounds and genuine slapstick, Yllana creates its work out of the most common situations of everyday life, combining huge energy with wit and risk. The company is renowned for its irreverent, often outrageous, sense of humor. Through onomatopoeic sounds and gesture, the company creates surreal and delirious worlds where anything can happen. From the troupe’s first experience on the stage, it has produced sixteen popular shows, many of which are still performed in repertory: ¡Muu! (1991), Glub, Glub (1994), 666 (1998), Hipo (1999), Rock & Clown (2000), Spingo (2001), Splash! (2002), Star Trip (2003), The Best Sketches of the Monty Python (2004), Olimplaff (2004), The Bald Prima Donna (2005) Buuu (2006) Pagagnini (2007), Musicall (2007) Brokers (2008) and Zoo (2009). These productions have been performed in 31 countries for nearly a million spectators
