Circo Pacco Biography
The company Circo Pacco was formed in 2012 by Alessandro Galletti and Francesco Garuti during the years of their training at the Atelier Teatro Fisico di Philip Radice Physical Theatre school in Turin, Italy.
Their expressive non verbal visual comedy and physical theatre is characterised through the pair’s modern adaptation of the classic clown archetypes and the dynamics between the “white clown” and “Augusto”.
They were inspired to create “100% Paccottiglia”, their first show, which since 2013 has been performed at street theatre festivals, in circuses and in theatres. With this show they have won the following first prizes: Premio Magnoberta (2013), Milan Clown Festival (2014), Clown & Clown Festival (2015) and the second place Premio Italiano Artisti di Strada (2016) (Italian Street Performer Prize).
In 2018 the company produced a full length theatrical version: “Paccottiglia Deluxe: cialtroneria di qualità superiore” with Daniele Lele Villari as the artistic and directional consultant. The show was performed for the first time in Le Musichall in Torino, directed by Arturo Bracchetti.
Following an international tour of Australia in 2019 the company has begun a new creation titled “The Winner”.
