Who is the dog and who is man never the twain to be parted
Theatre is hard work. Becoming successful in theatre or television or movies is even harder. I have been involved in all and it is not all the glam and glitz that actors portray. It is hard, sometimes soul-destroying work, especially in theatre. Just give up all your nights, your weekends, and your days to rehearsing and perfecting and failing and trying again. And if crewing, 5 AM starts. How many languages do I need to learn?

So when one man takes the USA, Italy and Australia on and does the whole play - what can you think? You can think what these other reviewers have seen. True talent not to be missed. He acts every part switching from character to character, keeping you riveted the complete show.

These are just a few comments from other reviewers.

'It was Motta who really shone... His ability to flick between two different characters was brilliant... he was able to make them feel like they were played by two different people with nothing more than a hoodie.' Adelaide Australia - L.O.V Theatre Review

'With an impressive dossier spanning the globe, Fabio has ticked all the boxes. He has studied under Phillipe Gaulier in Paris, Larry Moss in Melbourne and New York, not to mention training at HB studio in the US, and the Accademia Teatrale Veneta in Italy. He has worked and studied across three continents, though that fails to scratch the surface of his achievements: film, television, theatre and teaching.' Jenna LoBianco - Segmento magazine.

Now, I have been lucky enough as a WeekendNotes reviewer to get a ticket and be able to review this one-man play. Or one man and one dog play. Hey, the dog needs a credit too! Credits are everything in our industry.

Motta brings his life story to life along with his dog spot. The story follows his life when he migrated at the age of 8 and has had tried to find a new place to call home in multicultural Australia. Motta is training to be a "very good English actor". From the reviews so far, he has the acting and the comedy well in hand as well as being a full-on clown. Rumour say, it is hilarious, but not G rated, so no kids allowed. Be ready to be very entertained.

I am so looking forward to it. I have found so much talent in the Melbourne art-scape, and I think we may have another gem in this young man. I will update this article after the event and let you know. Hope to see you there.

It is limited in its showing, so do not miss out, book quick. Spot runs

One more note, this is a lovely iconic, intimate theatre, which you will fall in love with and it is easy to find a park.

Thank you to Jai Cameron, Publicity and Media Manager, for the photos. But I hope to take some of my own to share with you.
