Angela Delfini Explains It All For You: A ¾-Woman Show
Angela gets her temper going as the audience member tries to help her to get her shoe on.
From the Festival brochure:
Straight from Barcelona, Toronto, and La Spezia, meet Italy’s greatest export, personality pioneer Dr. Angela Delfini, and her nervous but brave subject, Estrella. Join them 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 the stuck-in-beta Estrella to dance and laugh her way to version 2.0 and beyond?? Probably, but not without your help!
Angela’s show will be performed on the following dates and times at the Festival.
Saturday, September 8 @ 7pm
Tuesday, September 11 @ 7pm
Sunday, September 23 @ 2pm

Sitting in the front row was a young ‘Harpo’ commenting on almost all the acts on stage. (His mother has her hand over face)

Look at What We Found
A clown ensemble from San Diego, California had to deal with the young ‘Harpo’ as he got involved in the show
The ensemble got into an improv of the previous clown act.
Headed up by Tommy Galan the ensemble worked with a guitar player as well.
From the Festival Brochure:
Look At What We Found is a theatrical improvised clown performance that invites the audience into a world where they can let go of their rigid adult lives, surrender to play, and find the joy and magic they left behind as children. The clowns begin with the stage and theater as their blank canvas, and with one brush stroke of stupidity at a time they build a tapestry of games, play, interaction and fun. Together, clowns and audience will Look At What We Found!
One more performance!
Saturday, September 8 @ 3pm

Jon is an accomplished clown and performed one piece in this cabaret. His remaining time with the festival will be teaching a workshop on Sat/Sunday. His performance was delightful.
Utilizing his clown skills and a comedic visual built into his costume Jon charmed the audience.
Nothing like ‘reaching out to your audience’.
Getting into the audience and making it work is one of the routines of a great clown.
For more information on Jon’s upcoming workshop ‘Devising and Creating Clown’ go here.
