After the great success of the widely acclaimed live on stage show ‘Green Porno’ (Bestiaire d’Amour) based on the popular Sundance Channel series, Isabella Rossellini presents a new one-woman show once again taking inspiration from the animal kingdom. A brand new solo lecture performance and a totally new experience for the audience around the world.
“This time on stage with me there will also be Pan, my trained dog.
I cannot have on stage all the animals I will talk about in the play so Pan and I we’ll dress up and interpret several different species.
Link Link is in fact a little circus.
Pan and I will address the newest scientiﬁc discoveries about animal minds, intelligence and emotions. I will also transform myself into Aristotle, René Descartes, a medieval theologian, Harvard Professor F.S. Skinner and Charles Darwin, all discussing what is the essence of human beings and what distinguishes us from the “brutes”.”
