Bianca Bertalot, a Brazillian artist, is performing her new show Cinco Coisas at this year’s Bath Fringe.
On May 29th and 30th come and see Bianca’s solo clowning show at Burdalls Yard as a part of Bath Fringe Festival.
Cinco Coisas: is a solo clown show inspired by the five basic developmental needs of a child – Place, Nurturing, Support, Protection and Limitation. Through dance, play, clowning and improvisation it proposes to lead the audience on a purely human experience.
A playful, poignant and inspiring show where two opposing viewpoints, but complementary, are presented by a single actress, who covers the polarities through the staging of two clowns and narrator.
The show aims to highlight the human vulnerability of the spectator existent since childhood, but doing so in a playful and entertaining way, as is characteristic of the clown.
Bianca Bertalot is originally from Brazil, where her studies in theatre, Brazilian dance and clowning started. She came to the UK to further her studies in the art of clowning where she trained with Nose to Nose, Tamala, Franki Anderson, The Original Spinners and Gerry Flanagan. Formal training in contemporary circus and physical theatre was undertaken at Circomedia. She has also trained in Co-Counselling, Dramatherapy and Voice Dialogue and is undertaking a BSc degree in Psychology with Counselling which has led to a passion of combining clowning and art therapy.
“Bianca Bertalot is a generous, sensitive and hilarious performer and the show carries a life-affirming message for everybody.”
– Holly Stoppit (Director of Cinco Coisas).
