Are you a Bizzoso???

Café Bizzoso is a visual art installation and performance space which is the brainchild of Normado Ismay. As a performance, Café Bizzoso has developed a mythology based on the stories of the amazing Bizzoso family.
Bizzosos are an extremely extended family that have a common genetic mutation that manifests itself in uncommon behavior, like reacting with laughter when confronted with serious matters, making up things that aren’t true or probable, improvising their way through life and being awkward most of the time.
Bizzoso strives to create a space that will affect the public in such a way that everybody in the room feels like they’re somewhere else, in a world where mistakes and imperfections are celebrated with improvisations.

Come one, Come all!

Cafe Bizzoso invites the public to come witness, and also welcomes anyone who claims to be a member of the Bizzoso family to share their talents in this evening cabaret
