Giovanni Fusetti è COVIVIDO: un incrocio tra un Buffone, uno Zanni e …un Virus. In questi tempi folli di triage, distanziamento sociale e sanificazione compulsiva, Covivido non vi lascerà scampo nel rispettare le mirabolanti misure anti-contagio. Invasivo, insinuante, tachente e saltellante.
Giovanni Fusetti is COVIVIDO: a crossbreed between a Bouffon, a Zanni and…a Virus. In these crazy times of tracing, social distancing and compulsive sanification, Covivido will ruthlessly enforce the wondrous anti-infection regulations. Intrusive, pervasive, sticky and outrageously hopping.

Ruth Dudding and Givanni Fusetti
Based on the true stories of four generations of women and their devilish alter egos, Mockingbird explores postnatal distress, which affects approximately one in seven women and many men every year.
Written by Lisa Brickell in collaboration with composer Sarah Macombee and dramaturge Ruth Dudding, Mockingbird is performed by Lecoq trained actor Lisa Brickell and musician/actor Siri Embla. Directed by Giovanni Fusetti and Ruth Dudding, Mockingbird follows Tina (Brickell), a counsellor who is afraid of commitment and terrified of having children due to her family history of postnatal depression. Brickell masterfully switches between four generations of characters and their hilarious ‘inner critic’ which she performs in a Commedia dell’arte style half mask.
THE RED NOSE & CLOWN’S LIFE
During this period of time Giovanni Fusetti has run 29 editions of THE RED NOSE TRAINING, a month intensive culminating with the devising and performance of a CLOWN VARIETY SHOW, developed by the participants through improvisation and devising, under Giovanni’s direction.
Ten of these trainings were part of a long term program at KIKLOS School (Padova, ITALY), HELIKOS School (Florence ITALY), NAROPA UNIVERSITY (Boulder, USA) and LISPA (London).
The other 19 editions were autonomously organized by Giovanni Fusetti in collaboration with different theatre companies and theatres around the world, and they took place in Boulder (USA), Minneapolis (USA), Auckland (NZ), Kristiansand (Norway) and Melbourne (Australia).
Between 2006 and 2018, Giovanni Fusetti has organized and run 6 editions of the advanced red nose training CLOWN’S LIFE, in Boulder, Colorado. The training culminates with a show of clown devised acts exploring the poetry of red nose, under Giovanni’ direction.
