My name is Lorenzo Gianmario Galli and I am a professional street and on stage performer.
Born in Torino ( ITALY ) in 1980, I graduated in Industrial Design / Architecture at the Polytechnic University of my home town in 2005. I decided to be a professional performer at the age of 27, as I began to attend the three-year intensive class in Physical Theatre with Lecoq method, at the Philip Radice's school ( 2007 – 2010 ). Besides this course I have attended, over the years, lots of workshops on topics ranging from clown to commedia dell'arte, from the use of the voice to dramaturgy, from puppetry to music.
Since 2010 I have been looking for my personal expressive language, rather focusing on street acts than in-door theaters. In more than ten years experience, my eccentric one-man-band, called GALiRò, participated to hundreds of events, both out-door and in-door, in Europe, Asia and America.
In addition to this show, which is my main act, I collaborated ( and still do ) with several international companies of street-theatre, variety-theatre, puppetry.
I lived in Granada, SPAIN ( 2011 – 2012 ), in Seoul, SOUTH KOREA ( 2012 – 2013 ), in Leipzig, GERMANY ( 2013 – 2014 ), and I came back to Turin in 2016, where I am based, right now.
In 2021 I started the “Oriphoea” project by making a short-film, already awarded in the “Animati in video” competition ( Arrivano Dal Mare Festival / Teatro del Drago di Ravenna, ITALY ).
The subsequent parts of the project are currently in creation.
