Quotes & Highlights

“A sustained hour of heaven from an entertainer touched by genius… performance at its crazy, creative, unfettered best.” —Time Out London
“Italian super mime, Ennio, is an origami extravaganza of celebrity impressions, a hilarious parade of delights and surprises. An immensely entertaining, pleasurable, playful evening. A dream of a show.” —San Francisco Examiner
“An amazing, sensational comedy masterpiece. It’s a brand new form of comedy and it’s the cleverest and funniest show I’ve seen in years. This is a show for everyone. I was overwhelmed.” —KGO


Ennio returns for the holidays! Direct from London’s Royal Festival Hall, the international origami sensation is back in Berkeley for the first time in two years with his new special holiday show featuring new characters. A perfect family entertainment for the holidays.

Don’t miss the original quick-change artist as he races through 50 life-size costumes in only 70 minutes, lampooning politicians, celebrities and historical figures in a presentation that’s part commedia, part Disney and all fun.
