It is the story of a young flamenco prodigy and his mother. Fran Espinosa, an outstanding dancer, recipient of the National flamenco award in 2007, plays his own role. Patrice Thibaud (terrific actor that came to Chaillot with Cocorico in 2008 and Jungles in 2011),  embodies this abusive and bulky woman, both overbearing and sweet. The set is an Andalusian kitchen where Spanish culture is dissected with devastating humor. Dalí, Picasso,  Don Quixote, and what have you appear in jumbled evocations.  Hilarious, tender, comical and poetic, Franito is a show for the ears and the eyes. Accompanied by guitarist Cédric Diot, the two performers draw upon buleria, a traditional and mocking style of flamenco. Franito offers an exciting and intelligent look at flamenco.
