I'll tell you who I am ...
My name is Antonio Brugnano and for more than 25 years I have been working as an actor and mime for important Italian theater companies, such as the company Quelli di Grock, Comteatro, Palkettostage, etc. These precious collaborations and the passion for this wonderful work have allowed me to act in Italy, Switzerland, Spain, France, Holland, England, Cuba and to receive various awards for my acting performances (Eolo Awards 2009 and Ribalta 2007 as Best Italian Actor Theater for young audience , ex aequo with A.Battistella, L'uccellino Azzurro Award 2007 best show for "Senza Coda” by Quelli di Grock in which I recite with my friend and colleague Debora Virello).
In recent years I have begun to feel the need to commit myself to new targets that would allow me to work with the other arts that I know that are the Mime, the Commedia dell'Arte and the Clownerie. With this desire the show "Mr. Bloom" was born, a wordless performance that uses the art of mime and clownery for a story that wants to speak to all those who do not want to stop dreaming.
Thanks to these dreams my proposals for teaching Mime and a silent theater were also born, which I prefer to call "... of the mute actor", in which the technical gesture and the expressiveness of the character meet to tell emotions and stories without words.
Other projects are on the road ... but just "in the street", to work in direct contact with the public of the squares. If you are curious, you just have to browse through these pages!
"Jekyll on ice" by Paolo Nani.
In 2017 an incredible opportunity happened to me, that is to be chosen by Paolo Nani as his substitute for the performances to be repeated in Asia of the performance "Jekyll on ice", a show that Paolo Nani Teater has replicated all over the world and that for more two years takes me on tour between theaters and festivals of China, Japan and on the island of Taiwan. And that's not all ...
And yes, I can really confirm it, sometimes it happens ... and not only in the movies !!
