Country of Origin Switzerland
Description Renowned theatre and circus artist Daniele Finzi Pasca and his Compagnia Finzi Pasca return to BAM with a mesmerizing theatrical homage to artist Salvador Dali. Inspired by the artist’s fiercely unusual oeuvre, La Verità is a dizzying display of acrobatics, theater, dance, experimental instrumentation, and multilingualism. A hand-painted backdrop, created by Dali for the Metropolitan Opera in 1944 and since forgotten, serves as the production’s centerpiece and dream-like setting. The versatile cast inhabits a variety of characters, giving shape to surreal sequences that are playful, contemplative, and daring.
