Ennio Marchetto

Inspired by Commedia Dell'Arte and Walt Disney, Ennio's first creation was Marilyn Monroe, with costumes, wigs and props made from paper. He's the original quick-change artist who revolutionises origami into theatrical magic. A living cartoon, his show is a tour de force of inspired creativity, featuring a whirlwind of amazing paper costumes and split-second changes. An endless parade of parodies waltzes before your eyes – from Eminem to Dolly Parton, taking in Madonna and Celine Dion.
