Sagliocco Ensemble

Sagliocco Ensemble consists of the actor Guandaline Sagliocco and the producer/actor Håkan Islinger.

Through a visual universe of humour and poetry Sagliocco Ensemble creates performances appealing to children and adults of all ages. The working method can be described as a quest for a stylised language springing out of textual, gestural and imaginal improvisation.
