LA VERITÁ from Compagnia Finzi Pasca will be playing the Merriam Theater for three shows May 13th and 14th. Enter to win four tickets below!
Inspired by the unbridled imagination of artistic genius, Salvador Dalí, La Verità features a cast of virtuosic performers- juxtaposing circus, dance, music, and vaudeville. Part love story, part lush dreamscape, La Verità unfolds as a colorful, acrobatic, and surreal poem where rhinos juggle, wine corks fall from the sky, and a sensuous feast of physical feats unfold before a replica of the original hand-painted backdrop by Dalí, himself.
Did you read that?
Remember how excited I was last week to go see The Magic Toy Shop, which was ballet meets circus— student performers from the Pennsylvania Academy of Ballet Society and the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts?
La Verità takes that whole concept up a notch by:
- being performed by professionals,
- choreographed by Cirque du Soliel creative Daniele Finzi Pasca,
- and then throws down the fact that it’s inspired by Salvador Dalí
- and performed against a replica of the original backdrop which was hand painted by Dalí himself.
If you were sitting here I would be leaning forward, looking very anxiously into your eyes, concerned you might be ready to pass out at the magnificence of that description.
