"Matute is one those who is moving forward, beyond tradition, without losing the roots of spontaneous play. Matute is more than a stereotype. He is neither a mask nor an actor doing "clown things." No. He is one expressed by the stupidity of being joyful in any situation. The opportunity to meet Matute is the opportunity to participate in the birth of the smile."
