Andrea Spisto makes a show about what she knows best – herself – and what an interesting person she is! If it is the dream that makes a person, it is fair that there are many people in Spisto – she possesses many dreams and as many skills. She clowns, sings, dances, raps, mops and wants to be as many things as she is told she must be – and challenges each and every one of them.
