Compagnia Baccalà

The company

The Baccalà Clown was born from the union of Simone Fassari and Camilla Pessi. After attending the Teatro Dimitri school in Switzerland together, they both went on to have different experiences performing in many circuses and cabarets in far away countries without seeing each other for years.

Then, one day in 2004 Simone contacted Camilla to substitute her previous partner and so this is how an opportunity presented itself – to the two of them and to the world – to understand the artistic and human complicity that was born from their exceptional way of working. Together they perfected the characteristics and techniques of their characters until they created the repertoire with which they travelled and continue to travel the world.

In 2008 Valerio Fassari, artist, man of theatre, musician and above all a true friend joined the company to support it during its participation in important international circus festivals like those of Moscow, China and Paris at the festival of Cirque de Demain. From that point on their artistic and personal collaboration developed and had a big influence on their work.

Under his external supervision, they mastered the dimensions of the theatrical clown performance. 2010, was the year in which the director – Louis Spagna went on to complete this work signing the creation of the show PSS PSS.

This first creation was wonderfully received and highly acclaimed all over the world like in France, Brazil, Egypt, Guyana, Turkey, Polynesia, Morocco and in Italy passed for the first time with great success through the Festival of Avignon in France in 2011, which they repeated in 2013.
