Co-founder, together with the choreographer Elisabetta Faleni, of the company Teatro in Polvere, he has been creating since 2000, as creator and co-author, “Teatro-Cucina®”, a show which, with over 500 performances, has given its name to a real genre. Among his writings and theatrical direction “Sushidio®”, “Il Piccolo Attore”, “Dojo-Ji” (with the Japanese singer Shinobu Kikuchi) and, currently on stage, “PFF” with Valentina Cidda.
Alternating the creation of plays to the work of an actor (he is Michelangelo in “Giudizio Universale” by Marco Balich) and to the training activity (in Italy and abroad), he is currently engaged in the publication of his plays (13 to date) and in the writing of his first novel.
His theatrical research activity is currently the subject of a thesis at the University of Bologna, with the title “Il teatro di Valentino Infuso”.
