The world of entertainment is one of the sectors that has been most affected this 2020 by the health situation. However, many of the artists have taken advantage of these months to work on their projects and have presented them despite the restrictions. This is the case of ‘Sin Ojana’, a show by the Cordovan Germán López that mixes circus, theater and flamenco.  A work that has led him to win the first prize at the Circada festival in Seville, among many others.

Hence the name. In gypsy slang, the word «ojana» symbolizes hypocrisy, «what would be insincere applause when a show ends. I didn’t want that; when Pepa Gil asked me what the name of the play should be, it was clear to both of us when I said what I didn’t want. Sin ojana means no lies,» says the artist.

Claiming the importance of the cultural sector after the pandemic and showing that Cordoba has a special place in the circus world is also one of the messages that this work wants to show. «I’m worried that the people of Córdoba don’t know that our city has nationally recognized works and that’s what I want to show too, because I, for example, always carry Córdoba as my flag» says López, who this Wednesday premieres the work for the first time in his city.
