Story: Sono io ?
In Sono io ? at the Théâtre du Rond-Point, father Danny and son Pepijn come together on stage for a touching portrait of their relationship. Twining emotion and humour, together they share a true love of circus and music. In this unique and poetic show, they skilfully juggle their similarities and differences.
A living embodiment of ancient circus traditions, Danny has been a widely acclaimed clown for forty years, and Pepijn has decided to follow in his footsteps, upholding the art of clowning from generation to generation. Brilliant and sensitive, their duo is truly endearing. While numerous references to the past are portrayed, both the father and son remain firmly grounded in the present.
A moving tribute to the Circus Ronaldo tradition, Sono io ? shows Danny's desire to recapture his former glory and Pepijn's desire to support him despite a shaky start. It's amazing how touching a circus show can be!
Théâtre du Rond-Point
Théâtre du Rond-Point
If you ever want to feel the pulse of the French theatre scene, the Théâtre du Rond-Point is the place to be! But which roundabout or "rond-point" is it exactly? It's one of the most famous roundabouts in Paris, located near the Champs-Elysées, smaller than the famous Etoile roundabout under the Arc de Triomphe. Since 1981, it has attracted a host of directors from all over the world and a host of people with a passion for theatre. A major venue for contemporary creation since 1991, the Rond-Point does not programme "what people like, but what they don't yet know they’ll like", according to Jean-Michel Ribes, the theatre's current director. A real creative programme focused on living authors creating stories in real-time!
