Lorenzo Novani is a writer-performer based in Scotland. His work has been produced at The West End Festival, The Scottish Mental Health Festival and The Edinburgh Fringe Festival at which Lorenzo's debut theatre play, 'Cracked Tiles', received an 'Outstanding' award as well as a Bouquets and Brickbats top monologue award. The work was subsequently invited to, and shown at, Brighton Fringe Festival in May.
To date, Lorenzo has worked with the mental health charity CALM, raising awareness of their work through his performances of 'Cracked Tiles', a play which was heavily inspired by his personal experience of seeing a loved one suffer from psychotic depression. Lorenzo has also written for The Herald on the subject of mental health.
Currently, Lorenzo is developing his second theatrical work, 'Sticks and Stones'- the story of a controversial far right group in Britain. Also, as an established professional magician and Member of The Scottish Conjurers Association, Lorenzo has also written material for the International Magic Festival which takes place every July in Edinburgh. Lorenzo's body of work actually includes several professional magic and mentalism performances including 'Poet of the Impossible'- a dream themed spoken word performance drizzled with psychological and visual illusions. The show received a 5 star review from Broadway Baby, a 'Highly Recommended' from Fringe Review and was featured in Culture Trips's top 10 spoken word picks of the EdFringe 2016.
