Link Link Circus, a new “theatricalized lecture” by the legendary Isabella Rossellini, is a comedic and scientifically informed look at the links between humans and animals, via Darwin’s theory of evolution. The show is illustrated with Rossellini’s short comic films, home movies, and animation. Rossellini transforms herself into Aristotle, Descartes, a medieval theologian, and other helpful thinkers of the past, while her dog Pan plays various animals, assisted by puppeteer and animal handler Schuyler Beeman.
