In ‘Sono Io?’ (translated: Is that me?), Danny & Pepijn Ronaldo, father and son and both clowns, try to draw closer together. In this part autobiographical, part fictional show, they go in search of themselves and each other. A theatrical masterpiece, beautiful and funny, that touches the core of our humanity.
Danny Ronaldo is an acclaimed clown who has been on stage for over forty years. A living embodiment of circus heritage and history, he trained in ancient circus and theatre traditions passed down within a six-generation circus family. Pepijn, Danny’s second son, was brought up on circus and started performing in shows at the age of eight. He recently graduated from the Belgian theatre school LASSAAD, and now wants to spread his love for circus and clowning.
The characters in ‘Sono Io?’ are therefore taken from life, although not one-to-one. The father in this story, an award-winning clown, is stuck in his past, hopelessly searching for a faded feeling of ecstasy. The son, an up-and-coming talent, searches for the reconciliation of his two beloved worlds: the old glory of his father and a new world with new opportunities. Through their shared love of music and games, they build a bridge between their similarities and differences.
