You ended up on Compagnia del Buco's website. We are a clown and nouveau cirque company based in Reggio Emilia. Since 2017 we look to create shows that carry the audience to a new dimension, working on the absurd that can be found in simple and day-to-day actions, on things' potential and on human stupidity, and ours, with the hope of leaving an image, a feeling, a word. A philosopher and a mathematician that together form a powerful, passionate, and brilliant duo, attentive to culture, aesthetic, and precision. We don't just make shows: we have other passions as well, such as projecting and building scenographies, or developing mobile apps and websites (like this one, for instance!). Anyway, this was meant to be only a short introduction, thus we'll cut it here; on this website you may find more information about us and what we do.

See you!
