The 2015 Instant Acts Tour
In September and October of 2015, Ruxy toured Germany and Northern Italy as part of the Instant Acts Cast (performer and teacher). Instant Acts is an initiative against violence and racism organized every year by Berlin-based non-profit Arts Organization Inter Kunst. 14 artists from all over the world come together every Fall and perform and teach workshops to children and youth in German and Italian schools and prisons.

Summit Fever, thesis at Dell'Arte, the threesome also known as Falling Fools Ensemble. Trailer Video (Left) and the entire 25-minute show below. Ruxy as Gregor the Climber, Anthony Arnista as Smog, Amelia Van Brunt as Mayo.
Summit Fever follows the journey of three grotesque clowns in a treacherous and highly physical ascent of Mount Everest. Tattered and beaten down, Smog, Gregor, and Mayo have been together on the tallest mountain on Earth for too long - constantly attempting to summit the elusive peak for what feels like, or may be, eternity. The clowns endure blizzards, avalanches, excruciating cold and pain, and most horrible of all, each other's company. All for a chance at the view on top of the world and the glory it comes with.
