Immagine: Compagnia Finzi Pasca
A nostalgic and emotional creation, a new way of going to the theatre, devised with people’s safety in mind and in response to the difficult times we are living through. Luna Park – like a fairground ride is opening the 2020 autumn season at the LAC in Lugano (Switzerland).
Luna Park is like a “fairground ride” inside stage machinery and the secret world of circus performers and clowns. A return to the origins of the Compagnia Finzi Pasca, wholly devoted to today’s public, who can let themselves be transported by lights, colours, mirrors, music and by the nostalgia of a surprising and light-hearted age.
There is mystery in fairgrounds… as in this show, where in small groups the public will travel in a dream, behind the stage curtain, discovering unique and secret points of view and living the stage together with the actors, close to them as never before but in complete safety.
For groups of up to a maximum of 25 people, with around 50 “fairground rides” a day lasting 20 minutes each. From 8 to 20 September at Lugano LAC (Lugano Arte e Cultura).
“In this strange and uncertain period we decided to reinvent ourselves, returning to our origins, to the place where inspiration rests and regenerates, where the sputtering engine of the imagination mutters and rediscovers good cheer, where the theatre rediscovers itself each time, with stories to tell and ways of telling them.
Over the years we have created shows which, from the intimacy that we started with, have tackled the monumental. Now is the time to bring together past experiences, in response to this strange period.
This show will be like a fairground ride, a nostalgic and emotional show, where lights and mirrors, emotions and lightness come together once more. A show at once intimate and open to large masses of viewers, who will move close to the construction of a scene like voyeurs and, without realizing it, will be transported into a dream, into a game that will in some way embrace and seek to heal."
