Bio-picinin

“Active for over 10 years with street performances and visual performances, Beppe Tenenti developed his own original comic style. His performances are full of a light-hearted humor that often become bitter and biting. Without ever forgetting the quality of technical movements, they are based on a personal search of entertainment, the act and the experimental nonsense. Beppe does not try to please the public with entertainment stereotypes but always goes in search of the difficult and risky act on stage. A boundary between the provocation and the simple fun , BeppeTenenti does not obey any rules in the scene. As a clown he is in fact available to the challenge that seeks and accepts without knowing where it will arrive. His surreal performaces are cause for great concern for the public that is curious at first, and then conquered by the technical expertise of its action and the “nothing to understand” that is inherent in the scene. “(S.
