CIRCO PACCO was created by Alessandro Galletti and Francesco Garuti, two young artists who studied Performing Arts at Atelier Teatro Fisico Phillip Radice at the University of Turin. They specialise in visual comedy and physical theatre typical to Lecoq’s methods, reviving the arts of clowning, comic magic, slap-stick, improvisation, juggling and acrobatics reminiscent of the clowns Bianco and Augusto. The show Paccottiglia has toured the most famous piazzas of Italy and has performed at numerous international street theatre festivals.
About this event
Paccottiglia (Junk) is more than just a contemporary circus. A clown-esque show that parodies the circus world thanks to two authentic scoundrels, Frank Duro and Gustavo Leumann. Attempting to set up their show, they try (by all means) to earn the centre of the stage -- at the cost of baffling each other.
