Charl / ie-ot
this page is in working progress
directed, choreography, dramaturgy and costumes by Beatrice Panero
Inspired by the autobiography and movies of/by Charlie Chaplin I made in June 2018 the dance performance "Charl/ie-ot" as guest choreographer at Theater Ulm, Germany.

.... A documentary on the life and film career of Charlie Chaplin ... a living museum that honors the man and the artist through a "show station" architecture that corresponds to precise works and moments in Chaplin 's life.”
