A new theater work from the award-winning actress & filmmaker

Following her widely acclaimed theatrical lecture Green Porno, award-winning actress and filmmaker Isabella Rossellini once again takes inspiration from the animal kingdom in her new show, Link Link Circus. Joined onstage by various species portrayed by Pan, an accomplished canine performer, Rossellini transforms herself into Aristotle, Descartes, F.S. Skinner, Charles Darwin, and more, to deliver a vivid monologue about the brilliance of the animal mind.

Link Link Circus is co-directed by Guido Torlonia and co-produced by Teatre Akadèmia.

Isabella Rossellini is “the best professor you could ever imagine: witty, lovely to watch.”
New York Magazine

Award-winning actress and filmmaker Isabella Rossellini takes inspiration from the natural world in her new theatricalized lecture: Link Link Circus. Following her widely acclaimed Green Porno (adapted from the celebrated Sundance Channel series) that explored the sexual behavior of other species, Link Link Circus addresses the latest scientific discoveries about animal minds, intelligence, and emotions. Joined onstage by various animals portrayed by Pan, her trained dog, Rossellini transforms herself into Aristotle, Descartes, F.S. Skinner, Charles Darwin, and more, to deliver a vivid monologue about the brilliance of the animal kingdom.

Link Link Circus is co-produced by Teatre Akadèmia.
