Luca Angius aka Dhyano is an Artist/ Performer based in St.Ives Cornwall UK. I was born in the three-lingual region of South Tyrol Italy.He took a diploma in Electronics and went on to read Performing Arts at the University of Bologna at the time when Umberto Eco was the Director of the Department. There he had the chance to participate to several Theatre workshops including with Dario Fo and a seminar with the Living Theatre. He also followed a 2 years drama course. In Florence he set up a performance company called ‘Improvvise Azioni’ collaborating with a number of major arts events including Arezzo Wave, Centro Pecci and the Contemporary Art Center Container. I’ve moved to London in 1997 I took a diploma in Arts Management and collaborated with many venues (including ICA, Round House, Commonwealth Institute and Pump House Gallery). In 2002 I’ve moved to St.Ives Cornwall where I was part for many years of a Comedy Theatre group, regularly performing at the Theatre Upstairs at the St.Ives Arts Club.
