Pippo Delbono puts the whole world on stage. His productions rage, provoke, enthrall and move us to tears. With flamenco, flowers, paper boats, poetry and a Fellinian circus parade, this astonishing quest for joy affects all the senses and hits you in the heart. Hear one of today's most distinctive artistic voices - recognised with theatre and movie awards across Europe.
Pippo's production is like watching a live Fellini movie, one filled with memories, surprises and dreamlike imagery.

A theatrical ode to joy, surprise and enchantment

by a poet of marginalisation and diversity

“The works of Pippo Delbono leave viewers alternately elated, drained, shocked and thoughtful.” The New York Times

Pippo Delbono puts the world on stage. His productions rage, provoke and move us to tears. They aim for the heart.

La Gioia highlights the consequences of living without understanding. It brings anguish and ecstasy to the stage, accompanied by paper boats, flamenco dance, flowers by the thousand and a circus parade worthy of the great Fellini.

Delbono is one of Europe's most distinctive artistic voices, in the firmament of Pasolini, Beckett, Bausch and Kantor. Following in the footsteps of theatre greats Peter Brook and Ariane Mnouchkine, he won the European Prize for New Theatre in 2009, and his films have garnered prizes at festivals in both Nyon and Venice.

Delbono's unique company joins professional actors with non-professional performers from the margins of society. His production La Gioia is an eighty-minute journey of surprise and enchantment. Embracing extreme feelings and the pain of the world, Delbono and his cast of misfits show us who we really are through ‘joy’.



Approx 1 hr 10 mins with no interval
