Poetics of old nomadic theatre and circus companies combining all kinds of human skills and creations. Batacchio draws inspiration from the poetics of old theatre companies that used to wander around the country from one place to another. The audience watches a parade of acts, from circus numbers to theatre sketches and music acts, from what seemed like cutting-edge technology to magic tricks, and anatomic anomaly of both humans and animals.

Batacchio is bound to charm you with the ambiance of ancient shows, loaded with magic tricks, breathtaking acrobatics and humor. Seven acrobats and actors in an original fusion of contemporary circus and disciplines you will hardly ever get the chance to see on stage these days.

Directed and authored by Maksim Komaro, the Finnish director who has collaborated with the ensemble since the show Slapstick Sonata. Despite the demanding set design, the company returned with this show to the famous Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.
