Introducing Isabella Rossellini's Link Link

‘Everything I studied at school which was very serious, I try to visualise it and make it fun’ is how the Golden Globe-nominated actress Isabella Rossellini begins to describe her remarkable one woman (and one dog) show, which came to Southbank Centre in October, 2018.

Sitting somewhere along a spectrum between circus and lecture, Link Link is a theatrical show, in which Rossellini explores, in her own unique way, what distinguishes animals from humans. Aided by her dog, Pan, Rossellini examines the theories of Aristotle, Descartes, and the research of Charles Darwin to help gain an insight into the intelligence and emotions of the animal world.

Here, in this specially produced video trailer, Rossellini explains what led her to create Link Link, and how the show comes together.

Link Link Circus Sizzle


I want it to be like a circus, just like when I was a little girl playing, only with the added knowledge now of my Masters degree on animal behaviour.
