Bio:

Accomplished actress, mime and comic, Paula Valluerca brings award winning show in Spain Madame Señorita: ¿Eres Tú? to the Edinburgh Fringe this year, a character creation that will set tongues wagging and hearts racing.

‘One of the best things I have ever seen’

Mouth London ***** 5 STARS

Madame Señorita is a force of nature who has come to Edinburgh to provoke and entertain her audience, and tell them about her life with her show ¿Eres Tú? Using interactive games and original live music, Madame Señorita takes her audience out of their comfort zone. Human obsessions, fear of abandonment, or the desperate anxiety of being recognised are some of the themes to be found in this bizarre and unique journey.

Singing and flamenco-ing her way to a new fortune, Madame Señorita shares with us the tales of her tempestuous love life, including her affair with Roberto, a Spanish priest with a tendency to run away when things get complicated... Her endless search for love provides some, literally, touching moments with the audience.

But don't worry, Madame Señorita is playful and passionate but she doesn't bite, at least not usually. She just wants to leave her mark on British culture and make us a bit more open to our feelings. So, if you want to leave behind social norms and preconceptions, make space for passion and curiosity for life, this is a show for you!
