La Verità - Compagnia Finzi Pasca

Written and directed by Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo creator Daniele Finzi Pasca, La Verità is a theatrical homage to surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. Ideas and images collide in a decadent Vaudeville channeling of Dalí’s vision, as acrobats play instruments, sing, juggle, contort, clown and can-can amongst unfurling flowers, distorting shadows, ladders suspended in empty space, impossible balances, dismantled corpses, blindfolds, feathers and sequins. The work will feature a gigantic replica of a hand-painted Dalí backdrop, a macabre rendering of Tristan and Isolde produced for a 1944 New York Metropolitan Opera ballet production.
