"La Verità" by Daniele Finzi Pasca at BAM
Director: Daniele Finzi Pasca; Performers: Compagnia Finzi Pasca
In this acrobatic homage to Salvador Dalí, Swiss contemporary circus maverick Daniele Finzi Pasca (Donka: A Letter to Chekhov, 2012 Next Wave) conjures a lush vaudevillian dreamscape where rhinos juggle, corks fall like rain, and the eccentric surrealist appears as a wayward aquanaut, stumbling upstage while an aerial artist tumbles into the sky. This sensuous feast of feats unfolds before a replica of an original hand-painted backdrop by Dalí himself, a macabre rendering of Tristan and Isolde produced for a 1944 Metropolitan Opera ballet production. Movement, images, and ideas warp and linger like the haunting figures on the canvas, in a ravishing showcase of virtuosity, humor, and theatricality.
