The Fabulous Costa Rica Brothers

The Fabulous Costa Rica Brothers, started the Turkish leg of their world tour on 26th September, with a well received show at Özel Karşıyaka Piri Reis İlköğretim in Izmir. They performed as part of the ‘Language Festival’, a celebration of language learning, where students performed songs and gave  short presentations in French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Italian.

Asked to describe their show Enrico Costa Rica said, ‘It’s a mixed bag of stories, theatre and mayhem, all in English. We tell tall tales and involve the audience as much as is physically possible. ‘

Language teachers at the school were left enthusing that 4th-8th graders had come away inspired and motivated and Emilio Costa Rica said, ‘The students were great and they understood the tale telling and our performance without the need for a translation…..which is wonderful, because sometimes even I can’t understand what Enrico is saying!’
