Magnificent! Sublime! Angela Delfini will certainly be much talked about!

Join Delfini and her brave subject Estrella on a clownesque five-step recovery program full of unique challenges and you-can't-go-home-again transformations. Can the maniacally confident Delfini get stuck-in-beta Estrella to dance and laugh her way to version 2.0 and beyond? Probably... but not without your help!
Angela Delfini Explains It All For You summons up a world of characters and draws upon the styles of physical comedy, dance, and circus, and especially on the power of you, the audience. A comedy, but with a serious theme: the role of humor, of playing the game, in our never-ending creation of self.
ANGELA DELFINI (Creator/Performer) is a multi-talented, multi-lingual Italian comic actress, who has worked extensively in film, theatre, cabaret, and circus. She has performed throughout Europe and in four different languages (Italian, French, Spanish, and English.) After graduating from the Paolo Grassi theatre school in Milan and working with choreographers, including Susanne Linke, Angela decided to deepen her studies of classical dance and '"mobile architecture" with the movement masters, Prisca Picano and Salvatore Tarascio. At the same time, always attracted to the theater and the authenticity of improvisation, she studied the Lecoq method with the master, Kuniaki Ida. This twin focus on the body and acting led her to work as an actress, first in Italy with the Marciel Cinema-Theater's The Colors of Life, and as the creator of her own performances, Festina Lente and Viva the Uorcsciopp. In France she continued her work with the Ploum Company and other film directors. In New York, she studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and in Barcelona at the Nouveau Clown Institute, with Jango Edwards and other artists from several countries. Recent collaborations include RainTomatoes (Mantova, 2013); Theater of Pettirosso for Le Cirque des Femmes (2015); La Srabis (Italy, 2017); Magda Clan Circo (2017-18 tours).
