SHARJAH: Saltimbanco Italiano is a Dubai-based Italian theatre events company that has been taking part in the Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF) for six years.

The company was started in Rome in 1991 by its CEO, Celina Miklaszewski, and the company’s art director, Marco Fraschetti.

Miklaszewski says they are a world of fantasy and imagination. Miklaszewski hails from Rome, Italy. She is also a former CEO and founder at L’oblò dell’oblio.

She studied at Sapienza University of Rome, before joining Liceo Ginnasio E. Q. Visconti. She currently lives in Dubai,

About the activities of the company, Miklaszewski says they stage shows, event parades, management of festivals, kids events, and circus activities among others. She noted they have been in the UAE for 15 years, since they moved from Italy to Dubai. She said that Saltimbanco Italiano participated in the Sharjah Water Festival, the Puppets and Figurative Act Festival, the Mechanical Parade, a wonderful mechanical parade with acrobats and giant bike, the around the world parade, and the celebrations of the UAE National Day, among other activities.

She added, “We performed many diverse shows here in the SIBF, such as the Super Hero (In the Comics hall), roaming acrobatic parade, the puppets parade and goggling shows.

About the roaming acts, Miklaszewski said it is a great way to bring joy to the SIBF’s visitors.

During the roaming shows, interaction with the audience, according to Miklaszewski, is key.

“This is how communication and the capacity of artistic expression can be rediscovered,” she said, adding that being interactive means that the shows will be memorable.

“When you’re watching a show, you experience it through your eyes and ears, but when you’re involved and you’re an active part of it, you awaken all your senses and you will remember it,” said Miklaszewski.

When asked about other countries they’ve performed in, Miklaszewski said they have performed in Saudi Arabi, Kuwait, Qatar, and Bahrain.

About the SIBF, Miklaszewski said it is an amazing chance for kids to learn and enjoy.

“There are a lot of different books of different cultures and there are the art shows which appeal to all ages. Our spectators include kids and adults,” she said.
