Repertory

“Pss Pss” Hilarious, tender, and ingenious, inspired by Chaplin, Keaton, and the stars of silent films, this timeless performance of enthralling physicality and exquisite expression has been delighting audiences the world-over since 2010. Inventive, exciting, and ridiculous, this breathtaking pas de deux of mishaps and acrobatics will have you laughing long after you leave the theatre. Winner of 16 international prizes last one in February 2024 including the Cirque Du Soleil prize, you’ve never seen anything like it.

Two characters simultaneously sure of themselves and completely lost, stumble onto the stage as though by accident. Wordlessly, through humour, acrobatics, and slapstick, the two go on an antic-filled voyage. Compagnia Baccalà’s new show is firmly placed within the long history of Clown, refreshing without distorting this (dis)honourable tradition.

Oh Oh is a slice in the life of a double-act, an absurd pas de deux, from multiple-award-winning international physical theatre company Compagnia Baccalà

“Experts in the singular art of Clowning. A marvel.” LE FIGARO
“A triumphant return.” LA REGIONE

Bios

Camilla Pessi and Simone Fassari first crossed paths at the Accademia Teatro Dimitri in Switzerland, only to go their separate ways, embarking on individual journeys through the worlds of circuses and cabarets across various countries. Their paths reconverged in 2004 when Simone, in need of a stand-in for his acrobatic partner who had unexpectedly left, reached out to Camilla. This reunion sparked an unexpected artistic and personal synergy, leading them to create their own unique repertoire and eventually run away together from the circus they were with to forge a new path as a duo.

In 2008, their ensemble was enriched by the addition of Valerio Fassari, a theater artist, musician, and close friend, who took on the roles of outside-eye and technical director. Valerio’s involvement deepened the theatrical and clown performance aspects of their work, blending elements of theater and circus into the personas they crafted together.

The trio’s collaborative genius culminated in the creation of “Pss Pss,” their first full-length work, directed by Louis Spagna in 2010. This show has since enjoyed international acclaim and has been performed in a plethora of countries including France, Great Britain, Brazil, Egypt, Japan, Italy, Canada, South Korea, Germany, New Zealand, and many more. “Pss Pss” has been featured in major festivals around the world, such as The London International Mime Festival and the Avignon Festival in France, as well as enjoying multiple successful runs at the Edinburgh Fringe. Through their innovative blend of circus arts and theatrical expression, Camilla, Simone, and Valerio continue to captivate audiences worldwide with their enchanting performances.
