'A charming talent - bold fresh and funny'
Meet Guiseppe Tato – a man with memories, fantasies and ghosts… and a few things he thinks he needs to prove. The world seems so beautiful and he loves his life so much, but he just can't help messing it up. He loves women, but always the ones who don’t love him. He tries to be tough but it’s not his style. He thinks he doesn’t need anyone, but his mother is always there. And he thinks of himself as rather cool…
London-based Italian circus-theatre artist Simone Riccio tells Guiseppe’s endearing story through a mix of high octane acrobatics using German wheel and Chinese pole amongst other circus skills. Developed in collaboration with Spymonkey’s Aitor Basauri, composer/musician Gareth Jones, video artist Martin Devrient, and, from the world of circus, Rob Tannion, Lina Johansson and Sara Martinez Viejo, an early, short version of Nothing Moves If I Don’t Push It was shown at Jacksons Lane in 2012. LIMF13 is delighted to present the premiere performances of this new, full-length version.
