Compagnia Baccalà, the duo that has performed over 700 shows in 50 countries and received standing ovations at every single one of their performances in Istanbul last year, will be visiting Istanbul once again with Pss Pss!
Pss Pss has left a lasting impression on the Istanbul audience with its simple, straightforward narration and for the moments of happiness it has delivered. Founded by the immensely warm, sincere and productive duo Camilla Pessi and Simone Fassari, Compagnia Baccalà’s Pss Pss invites the audience into a different and yet so familiar world with a brilliantly constructed sense of humour and masterful physical narration. In a world where verbosity renders communication and understanding one another more difficult with each passing day, Pss Pss embraces audiences of all ages with a feeling of confidence emerging from silent understanding. The silent sentences Camilla and Simone form solely with their bodies, mimics and gestures open a window into the universality of human emotion. The play is a fresh, original and rare performance which blends the aesthetics of the silent film era with theatre, circus acts and clown while bearing traces of the style and manner of the greatest artists of the period, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.
Pss Pss has received numerous awards around the world including the Cirque du Soleil Award. The performance is, in essence, a play about the transformative powers of humour. Two characters, two modern-age clowns will accompany you on an hour-long breath-taking journey through a tunnel of happiness.
