Ennio Marchetto loves to dress up. Most noteworthy, his dresses are made of paper and carton, therefore the additive “The Living Paper Cartoon.” And by exaggerating typical features such as hairstyle (Tina Turner), tooth position (Freddie Mercury) or iconic dresses (Lady Gaga’s flesh) and through the playback music, Ennio’s figures are recognized worldwide although he completely renounces language.
Inspired by the carnival in his hometown of Venezia/Italy, Ennio Marchetto started his performances as living paper cartoon more than 30 years ago. During his long career, he perfected his show and has now more than 300 paper costumes in his repertoire.
