It is no news that the winter holidays present a variety of shows for the little ones to enjoy memorable outings. Marcos Rafael Gomezbetter known as the Bug Gomez, bets heavily on school break dates and takes his circus to the parking lot of the Terrazas de Mayo Shopping Mall, in Malvinas Argentinas. A matter of family heritage, the comedian enjoys his show. “I like that the circus has this family thing, where children, parents, grandparents can go and everyone laughs at the same thing. The grown-ups, when they return to the circus, remember their childhood”comments happily on the activity he has been doing since he was born.
In addition to their work projects, the family was crossed by “The First of Us” as Rocio Gomez, his eldest daughter, participated in fiction. Under the role of Uma, eldest daughter of Benjamin Vicunais considered the revelation of the Paramount production that Telefé broadcast until a few weeks ago.
-Is it an obstacle for the circus that children use so much technology today?
-It is extremely surprising, because the boys are accustomed to the digital. Magical things happen all the time in the circus, it happens from seeing something in action that you have never seen before like a trapeze artist, an acrobat, clowns that make you laugh, people flying through the air. What is great about the circus show is that the boys choose to go to the theater to see such a character, but this is chosen by the father because he was once a child and had fun with the circus. From the audience, you see everyone laughing at the same thing and it’s something magical.
-Did it cost you to settle down after the nomadic upbringing of the circus?
-It was not difficult for me, on the contrary. He really enjoyed working in the circus but what I didn’t like was traveling all the time, being a nomad. When I stayed in my home, it was beautiful because a little bit of everything also happened. Staying at home, going from the circus to the theater and, beyond the sacrifice, was very fluid. Circus people have a hard time, they prefer to continue and die there, it’s the life they know and they wouldn’t change it for anything.
-How do you live the labor present of Rocío, your daughter?
-With great happiness because since she was little she already had in her head what she wanted to be: an actress. She prepared herself all the time for this, she took her courses, she took her classes, she did the faculty at UNA, it makes me happy that her first job had such an impact on a program like this. I always accompany her and talk to her because what is successful one year is not so successful the next, so that she knows that this race is a roller coaster.
