The internationally renowned writer and director Daniele Finzi Pasca has pulled off everything from an Olympic ceremony and a production with the English National Opera to Cirque du Soleil.

Compagnia Finzi Pasca bring their mix of astonishing acts and fantastic visuals to Parramatta in LA VERITA, ushering in spirit and spectacle inspired by a recently rediscovered painting by Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí.

Written and directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca. this is an acrobatic and theatrical show featuring twelve acrobats and a spectacular curtain by Salvador Dalí as the inspiration for the surrealist visual landscape and large scale spectacle of the work.

The show combines circus, clowning, acrobatics, theatre, dance and music – with an extra serving of humour and heart – Compagnia Finzi Pasca let their imagination run wild in a thrilling experience that is sure to have made that illustrious moustache twitch with delight.

Compagnia Finzi Pasca began in 2011 when the two companies, Teatro Sunil and Inlevitas, merged with the desire to develop artistic projects which continue to broaden the “Theatre of the Caress” spectrum, a theatrical technique based on the invisible gesture and the state of lightness.
