Thelmo Parole

“The Show Must Go On!” by Thelmo Parole.

This brilliant mime street show is the brainchild of Spanish artist and street clown Samuel Penhastro. Curated from over 15 years of dedicated artistic exploration, directing, and performing across a multitude of projects.

This captivating performance is a masterful blend of mime, diablo, juggling, and slapstick comedy. All intricately woven together to engage and connect with the audience. Thelmo Parole’s unique approach focuses on improvisation, playful interaction, and emotional evocation, creating moments that are both poignant and hilarious.

With a sincere and sometimes eccentric sense of humor, Thelmo effortlessly bridges the gap between performer and audience. He invites them into a world of organic, humble, and unpretentious entertainment. Through subtle gestures and physical comedy, he transforms from a sophisticated and seemingly clumsy character into a ridiculous yet agile figure, shedding his glasses and classic attire for a lycra suit and superhero cape.

Drawing inspiration from legendary clowns like Grock and Buster Keaton, Thelmo infuses his performance with a modern twist, paying homage to the silent movie era where characters spoke volumes without uttering a word.

Thelmo Parole showcases that it’s not just about the skills on display but about creating a deeply personal connection with the audience—a tribute to the timeless art of silent cinema and the enduring power of human expression.
