My name is Luca Agricola. I started playing theater already in high school, in Sicily, where I was born, and because of this passion I have been studied at the Scuola Teatrale di Movimento of the Teatro Club in Catania and then I moved to Genoa, where I collaborate with Teatro dell'Ortica for 15 years. In this way I knew social theater, where theatrical action is mixed with helping action and pedagogy. Over the years I have been involved in theatrical projects in schools, in prison, with handicap and with psychiatrics and I am part of the company Gruppo Stranità. I was also part of the company Gruppo di Teatro Campestre with the work Un fischio, samba, morte. In the same time I took part in a lot of shows, dealing with dramaturgy and direction. I extended my training with lots of classes and workshops, among them with Giorgio Rossi (Sosta Palmizi), Hajo Schuler (Familie Floz), the clowns Jean Ménigault and Avner the Eccentric, the street performer Peter Weyler and "il maestro delle bolle" (the bubble master) Lorenzo Lovisolo.
Currently I am attending for the second year the professional training for contemporary dancers L'Azione Silenziosa, promoted by the DEOS company of Genoa and with the artistic direction of Giovanni Di Cicco.
I work for sYnergiKa asd, a circus arts school where I teach juggling to children and adults and where I can train and enlarge my knowedge in acrobatics, handstanding and acro dance.
I study philosophy and singing and I daily train juggling.
years I have been trying to bring my experience gained in theater to street performing.
