The Italian National Premiere

After a successful reception in Barcelona and at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in New York, Isabella Rossellini is here at the Cucinelli Theatre to present a highly original, one-woman show that takes its inspiration from the animal kingdom. An icon of style and beauty whose own career has echoed those of her parents, Isabella takes on the role of an uninhibited and dramatic performer in her first solo performance: a show-conference on non-humans and their intelligence. “Link Link Circus – explains the artist – features my comical short films, amateur videos, photos, and of course my drawings. On stage with me will be Pan, my small trained dog who will be dressed up as and interpret various species. I myself will interpret Aristotle, Descartes, a medieval theologian, the Harvard professor F.S. Skinner, and Charles Darwin; they will all discuss what the essence of human beings actually is, and what distinguishes us from beasts”.
“It has been a privilege to watch the actress of films by Taviani and Lynch display her talent and irresistible charm, as well as her scientific know-how”.
Jacinto Antón, El Pais
