An interactive show addressed to families in the context of a traditional fair which is deeply rooted in the region’s history (XVII° century): the Feria Estatal de León (6 million visitors).
A new creation where thirteen artists of the Compagnia Finzi Pasca perform theatrical, acrobatic, juggling and musical tricks, with the usual lightness and emotion. Abrazos also avails of new technologies supporting our “poetics of wonder and enchantment” (Daniele Finzi Pasca). A show that will get the public of León, the “city of shoes”, to smile, to dream and to embrace each other.
From January 10 to February 5, 2019
(75 performances, 3 times daily in an arena with a capacity of 4,000 seats; duration 55 min.)
Entrance to the show is included in the Feria’s ticket
“I went to visit them, and they welcomed me into their office as if we were friends. They told me about their fair, their land, their traditions and they conveyed to me the need to tell, by means of this show, something related to happiness. During our conversation, I was thinking that everything depends on the details and sometimes a simple gesture communicates so many things. Do you want a show full of positivity, that can convey something good? It would be nice, I thought, if at the end of the show the public would feel like embracing the actors, parents hugging their children… if everyone would feel the need to embrace each other. That’s how we greet each other in the street and I think it would be so nice to remind it to everybody.So we greeted each other like that, at the end of the meeting: with a hug. And we thought that that was already a good start for something good.”
