ANGELA DELFINI EXPLAINS IT ALL FOR YOU Plays Limited Engagement at The People's Building in October
Angela Delfini Explains It All For You, a full-length one-woman show created by multi-talented, multi-lingual Italian comic actress Angela Delfini and renowned physical comedy aficionado John Towsen, will play a limited engagement at The People's Building (9995 E. Colfax Ave, Aurora, CO 80010) in Aurora, Colorado as part of their United States cross-country tour this fall. Performances will be on Tuesday, October 16 at 7pm and Wednesday, October 17 at 7pm. Tickets ($15; $12 students & seniors) are available online at https://angeladelfini.bpt.me/ or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006. The performance will run approximately 60 minutes, with no intermission.
Join Delfini and her brave subject Estrella 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 stuck-in-beta Estrella to dance and laugh her way to version 2.0 and beyond? Probably... but not without your help!
Angela Delfini Explains It All For You summons up a world of characters and draws upon the styles of physical comedy, dance, and circus, and especially on the power of you, the audience. A comedy, but with a serious theme: the role of humor, of playing the game, in our never-ending creation of self.
John Towsen and Angela Delfini will also be teaching a special Physical Comedy Workshop on Wednesday, October 17 from 2-5pm. Admission is FREE and open to all levels of experience and body types. Come get a taste of how physical comedians work!
ANGELA DELFINI (Creator/Performer) is a multi-talented, multi-lingual Italian comic actress, who has worked extensively in film, theatre, cabaret, and circus. She has performed throughout Europe and in four different languages (Italian, French, Spanish, and English.) After graduating from the Paolo Grassi theatre school in Milan and working with choreographers, including Susanne Linke, Angela decided to deepen her studies of classical dance and '"mobile architecture" with the movement masters, Prisca Picano and Salvatore Tarascio. At the same time, always attracted to the theater and the authenticity of improvisation, she studied the Lecoq method with the master, Kuniaki Ida. This twin focus on the body and acting led her to work as an actress, first in Italy with the Marciel Cinema-Theater's The Colors of Life, and as the creator of her own performances, Festina Lente and Viva the Uorcsciopp. In France she continued her work with the Ploum Company and other film directors. In New York, she studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and in Barcelona at the Nouveau Clown Institute, with Jango Edwards and other artists from several countries. Recent collaborations include RainTomatoes (Mantova, 2013); Theater of Pettirosso for Le Cirque des Femmes (2015); La Srabis (Italy, 2017); Magda Clan Circo (2017-18 tours).
JOHN TOWSEN (Creator/Director) is the founder and director of the New York City Physical Comedy Lab and was founder and artistic director of the first NY Clown-Theatre Festival. He is widely recognized as an author, director, producer, performer, and teacher in clown, physical comedy, and allied arts. He has toured shows nationally and internationally and has taught full-length courses at Princeton, Juilliard, and NYU, and workshops in over a dozen countries. His 1976 book, Clowns: A Panoramic History, is still considered to be the standard work on the subject, and his blog All Fall Down: The Art & Craft of Physical Comedy (http://physicalcomedy.blogspot.com), is widely read by practitioners in the field.
