Link Link Circus
(U.S. Premiere)
May 16-23, 2018

Isabella Rossellini is “the best professor you could ever imagine: witty, lovely to watch.”
—New York Magazine

Award-winning actress and filmmaker Isabella Rossellini takes inspiration from the natural world in her new theatricalized lecture: Link Link Circus. Following her widely acclaimed Green Porno (adapted from the celebrated Sundance Channel series) that explored the sexual behavior of other species, Link Link Circus addresses the latest scientific discoveries about animal minds, intelligence, and emotions. Joined onstage by various animals portrayed by Pan, her trained dog, Rossellini transforms herself into Aristotle, Descartes, F.S. Skinner, Charles Darwin, and more, to deliver a vivid monologue about the brilliance of the animal kingdom.

Link Link Circus is co-produced by Teatre Akadèmia.
