Ten years after the appearance of Corteo (2005), Ticinese director Daniele Finzi Pasca has been called upon again by the Cirque du Soleil, together with Julie Hamelin Finzi, to direct a project inspired by the rich Mexican culture. Luzia, a name composed by the Spanish words luz (light) and lluvia (rain), will be presented at the Vieux-Port in Montreal on 4th May. The show will proceed its tour in Toronto beginning on 28th July 2016.
Other creators – already bound to the Compagnia Finzi Pasca in some way – have worked alongside Daniele and Julie in its creation: Eugenio Caballero (winner of the Academy Award for Best Production Design in Guillermo del Toro’s film Pan’s Labyrinth, 2006), costume designer Giovanna Buzzi (Turin and Sochi Olympic Ceremonies), and Geneviève Dupéré and Karen Bernal as directors assistants.
