In this acrobatic homage to Salvador Dali, Swiss contemporary circus maverick Daniele Finzi Pasca conjurs a lush vaudevillian dreamscape which 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 Dali 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 of the canvas, in a ravishing showcase of virtuosity, humor, and theatricality.
