Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Franco Dragone (born in 1952) is a Italian-Belgian theatre director. He is known for his work with Cirque du Soleil. Dragone was born in Cairano, Italy, and moved to La Louvi re, Belgium at age seven. In the 1970s, he studied theatre at the Belgian Royal Conservatory of Mons. His earliest theatrical work was explicitly political, working as a director of theatre and film in the mode of the commedia dell'arte dramatist Dario Fo. The theatre works he helped create expressed social situations, interpreting true stories of the homeless, drug addicts and prison inmates, and casting the non-actors that shared their stories to perform in the shows.show more
