Compagnia Finzi Pasca (Switzerland)
It is one of the leading independent artistic companies in the world. Based in Lugano (Switzerland), Compagnia Finzi Pasca is internationally renowned thanks to its particular artistic signature: the “Theatre of the Caress”, its own theatrical technique based on the invisible gesture and the lightness state that moves and dazzles. In its career, it created 3 Olympic Ceremonies (Turin 2006 and Sochi 2014, both Olympic and Paralympic Games), 2 shows for the Cirque du Soleil: Luzia in 2016 and Corteo in 2005 (for the latter, 9 million spectators in a 10-year world tour), 5 lyric operas of which Aida and Verdi’s Requiem are officially part of the Mariinsky Theatre (Saint Petersburg).
And then: Avudo, a multimedia show that combines video mapping, lights and water fountains for the city of Montreal (265,000 spectators in 4 months) and the next Fête des Vignerons (Winegrowers Festival) in 2019, an event that takes place every 25 years in Vevey (Switzerland) for 400,000 spectators. Currently, the company has 5 shows on tour: Per te (2016), Bianco su Bianco (2014), La Verità (2013), Donka (2010) and Icaro (1991). Other international projects and a new touring show are in preparation.
La Verita combines acrobatics, theatre, dance and music, inspired by a backdrop painted by Salvador Dalí for his Tristan fou in the 1940’s in New York. 11 multi-talented artists move and live-sing in a succession of images that lead us through surrealism, a love story, and a reflection about the truth, giving birth to an acrobatic poem.
For three years, the original backdrop painted by Dalí was part of the show. Nowadays, a replica of the backdrop is used in the show.
