Company

COSmino Theatre is made up of three parts.
One part was born in the east and the other was born in the west.
One day the two parts met and the third part was created. This part is what we are, what we do and what we share…

  • The potential of an experience.
  • The art of a dream.
  • The beauty of pain.
  • The fragility of happiness.
