Pss Pss

Compagnia Baccalà 



Inspired by the era of silent films, two characters take to the empty stage in a timeless performance of enthralling physicality and exquisite humour. An extraordinary physical performance blending contemporary clown with theatre and circus. Inventive and exciting, the characters' poetic and breathtaking fumble through mishaps, acrobatics, and life, will have you laughing long after you leave the theatre. 

"This is slapstick reimagined, silent storytelling at its best — delightful, light-hearted and hilarious." - The Times

"Sometimes a show is such a total delight that it is hard to write about it without just gushing ‘See it, see it!’ – Pss Pss is such a show. See it, see it." 
- Total Theatre

"One of the most magical shows on the circuit" - The Stage

"Takes the audience through a gamut of innocent emotions that are full of simple joy. Sensuous, insouciant and transporting, this gentle child- like dance of love and friendship transcends language and utterly captivates with imagination and fun." - Edinburgh Guide

"An intricate, textured clown piece that ranges from powerful comedic minimalism to elaborate aerial theatre and circus" - Fringe Review

Compagnia Baccalà was born from the union of Simone Fassari (him) and Camilla Pessi (her). They ran away from the circus they were in, created Pss Pss, and the rest is history. Winner of 13 international prizes, unique, funny, virtuoso and very charming, Pss Pss has been performed over 600 times in over 50 countries and on all 5 continents to huge acclaim. Poetic, surreal, intimate, and infinitely enjoyable, Pss Pss is a show that transports us, without words, to the seriousness and innocence of childhood.



By and with: Camilla Pessi and Simone Fassari
