La Verità is an experience that’ll have you gasping as
much at its imaginative feats as its physical ones. Daniele Finzi Pasca has
overseen not one but two Winter Olympics closing ceremonies so knows how to stage
a spectacular show.
This one has you
entering the world of a surrealist painting, with its heady mix of acrobatics,
theatre, dance and music performed against the monumental Salvador Dalí backdrop
that sparked the show.
But where Dalí was
inspired by nightmares, Compagnia Finzi Pasca’s “gaze is always charmed,
inspired by dreams”. This is a dream you won’t want to wake from, as the
agility of mind and body displayed by these cirque veterans leaves you
