Pippo Delbono’s biography:

Author, actor, and director, was born in Varazze in 1959. He begins training in traditional theatre, then, in Denmark, he studies the principles of oriental theatre, through a rigorous work on body and voice. Later, in Germany, he's invited by Pina Bausch to follow her work. At the beginning of the 80's he founds the Compagnia Pippo Delbono, creating most of his works with them, from Il Tempo degli Assassini (1987) to La Gioia*(2018). He does not stage plays but, rather, total creations, devised with a stable group of actors whose number has grown through the years. The encounter with socially marginalized people determines a turning point in his poetical research: that's how Barboni (1997) was born.  Some of these actors – among them Bobò, deaf-mute, who had been kept in an asylum in Aversa, near Naples, for forty-five years – have kept working with the company and are still a central part of this experience.

Pippo Delbono has also been investigating the language of film for many years now. In 2003, following a tour in Israel and Palestine, he shoots Guerra, presented at the Venice International Film Festival and winner of a David Di Donatello as best documentary.

His second film, Grido (2006), has been shown at the Rome International Film Festival and won the Prize for the best interpretation of Bobò and Delbono at “Festa di cinema del reale 2016” in Lecce (Italy).
