Ernesto Suárez presents his most personal solo show at the Independencia Theater

“Lágrimas y laughas” was the first one-man show by Ernesto El Flaco Suárez and can be enjoyed again this Saturday, June 18, at 9:30 p.m., at the Independencia theater. There will be in the story own texts and fragments of stories by Calderón de la Barca, Juan Draghi Lucero, Darío Fo, Juan Rulfo and Gabriel García Márquez.

Suárez will go to his childhood, his first steps on boards, his travels, the years of exile: life and work intersect in these stories; and to share them, El Flaco only uses gestures and the magic of stage narration.


Ernesto Suárez, El Flaco, is one of the most outstanding actors and theater directors in Argentina.

With the humor and simplicity with which he always addresses deep issues, El Flaco takes us on a journey from tears to laughter and to look at each other without sadness. He will have a critical and ironic look, but impregnated with a reflective humor from the social, as only Ernesto Suarez knows how to do. From its premiere until now, “Lágrimas y risas” has toured different cities in Argentina and Latin America and was presented at a long list of festivals.
