Nino Mallia, multi-talented mime and artist, is one of the last students of master Étienne Decroux; in the eighties he leaves his work and family to pursue the Pierrot hidden inside him… Paris, the studies, the street, the performances, the theater and finally the search for a space… a signalman’s house that he readapts, transforming it into a veritable “theater house” open to all artists but also to those in need. On the outskirts of time and reality, his theater house, for more than twenty years, has been a magical place that unites individuals of different cultures in the spirit of sharing and creative liberty. But Nino’s dream is seriously jeopardized by an eviction notice from Rome’s Court of Appeals. In December 2019 Nino is forced to leave his house… yet he cannot leave the stage, his art will follow him wherever he goes…
