Compagnia Finzi Pasca overseas

Theatre, dance, circus, opera and cinema: all these aspects converge in the Compagnia Finzi Pasca. Their poetic shows have fascinated audiences all over the world. Two of them can now be seen in Latin America: «Per te» in Columbia, and «Bianco su Bianco» in Mexico.

Compagnia Finzi Pasca has been invigorated by its exploration of the «Theatre of Caresses», a technique involving invisible gestures and a state of weightlessness. This appears in their poetic approach to inhabiting space and accessing memories, all of which awaken a sense of nostalgia. Two of their shows can now be seen in Bogotá and Mexico City:

«Per te», Festival Iberoamericano, Teatro de Bogotá, 16 – 26 March 2018
A bare stage, technicians and actors moving like cats in the dark as they get ready, slowly immersing themselves in a story that little by little envelops the spectator. It’s the story of a book given as a present, of a garden to be built, of a fight that we all, sooner or later, will have to experience and face.  The mission of each life is to build an inner garden where we may take shelter and welcome those we would like to meet in intimate and secluded surroundings.

«Bianco su Bianco», Centro Cultural Helénico, Mexico City, 29 March – 22 April 2018
This show plays on the balance between a sweet and nostalgic form of the absurd. Regardless of the simplicity and bareness of the theatrical apparatus, it forms a surrealist universe, a self-reflecting form of theatre, where actors use the proscenium to engage in a dialogue with the audience, where illusion and tricks are always disclosed at the end, where the clowns do not play fools, but rather embody the frailty of vanquished heroes.
