La Bouffon S.O.S.ial is an international artistic group of trained theatre professionals, inspired by the Bouffon-clown-mask teachings of Philippe Gaulier, Francine Côté, James Kaylon, Roch Jutras and Marcelo Magni.
We create artistic projects based on social, cultural and ecological issues. We seek to make members of the community more aware of such issues, through various forms of entertainment and laughter in so doing contribute to greater local cooperation and global understanding.
We use fun and laughter to improve the physical and emotional state of children and young people in areas of conflict and post-conflict.
Our mission is to entertain and help improve the quality of life for children and their families in communities of Mexico’s trauma, natural disaster, and conflict zones. Through artistic workshops and clown shows La Bufon uses fun and laughter to improve the emotional and physical state of the children in these communities.
