I have enjoyed watching Christina Gelsone and Seth Bloom perform for many years. In fact, many of those times it was behind my camera documenting them either solo or together. I recently was so moved by their new show “Airplay” that I had to find out more about their work process and their lives. Here is my interview with Acrobuffos!

TRIBUTE TO CARLO MAZZONE-CLEMENTI
From Wikipedia: Carlo Mazzone-Clementi (12 December 1920 – 5 November 2000) was a performer and founder of two schools of Commedia, mime and physical theater as well as a contemporary and colleague of leaders of the modern European theater. From his arrival in the USA in 1957, he was largely responsible for the spreading of commedia dell’arte in North America. He first gained attention in Italy in 1947 alongside Marcel Marceau in the mime’s first tour outside of Paris. From 1948 to 1951, he assisted Jacques Lecoq, while Lecoq taught and directed the Players of Padua University. In 1954, Mazzone-Clementi was at Piccolo Teatro di Milano with Dario Fo and Franca Rame.
