The daughter of Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman and Italian neorealist film director Roberto Rossellini, she is noted for her successful tenure as a Lancôme model, and for her roles in films such as Blue Velvetand Death Becomes Her.conceived, She has now created and performs a piece about animals’ thoughts and communications called Link Link Circus at the Baryshnikov Arts Center.

This show feels like a college lecture except you have the charming Ms. Rossellini in a cleverly deconstructed ringmaster costume (designed by Fanny Karst), a parade of her old toys and appearances by the most adorable dog named Peter Pan, Pan for short. Pan is a female rescue named Darcy. Pan also wears the most adorable costumes.

Ms. Rossellini did a previous documentary called Green Porno — a series of shorts she put together for SundanceTV before adapting them into a solo show that played the Brooklyn Academy of Music four years ago. Green Porno explored sex, “waist down,” Link Link Circus explores from “waist up”.

Running a farm on Long Island Ms. Rossellini has earned her master’s degree in animal behavior and conservation. In her show she uses puppets, projected drawings and animated videos to illustrate. Ms. Rossellini love for animals started at a young age, and she mentions her involvement with the Guide Dog Foundation.

Co-directed by Guido Torlonia, this piece is touching, slightly strange and endearing.

René Descartes, stated that animals don’t have a soul, therefore they don’t have a mind, therefore they are like machines. Mr. Descartes must have never lived with a cat or for that matter dog.
