In the comic theater, and particularly in the clown, is not the representation of something, but the identification.

Each week, in a practical and substantial way, deals with different aspects of the comic-creative process: in the beginning it’s focused on the physical work, than to experimentation and theatrical improvisation, passing through the presence on stage, the use of the scenic space, up to the creation of gags, performances and creation and development of the each artistic projects.
