Daniel Forlano

Artist / Creative (Individual)

A virtuoso theatrical comedian with extensive background in academic and pop settings, Daniel Forlano delivers a performance that is both deep and immediate. His experience with clowning, dance, acting, comedy, and improvisation come together like a jazz band personified. Called, "quircky in the extreme" by the Capitol Times (New Zealand) and "the Stephen Wright of physical theatre" by Avner Eisenberg, Daniel's contemporary clown is equal parts Sisyphus, Apollo, and Dionysus. For over ten years he has created original material and tuned his craft globally.
