US premiere of ADULT adaptation.
Building on the traditional text of Italian author Carlo Collodi, PINOCCHIO unfolds with contemporary resonance through an imaginative fusion of spoken word, movement, masks, light and shadows, sound effects and music. Presented in the company's signature style, PINOCCHIO is a dark, surreal adult tale of a wooden boy who becomes a real man and embarks on an adventure of self-discovery in a world full of very real dangers PINOCCHIO stars Giandomencio Cupaiuolo in the title role and Elsa Bossi as Fata, Pinocchio's fairy companion. The ensemble also includes Elena Nene Barini, Nicolo Belliti, Carlo Gambaro, Giacomo Pecchia, Giacomo Vezzani, and Jonathan Bertolai. In addition to the sets and costume design by Mr. Gregori, the production has sound design by Hubert Westkemper and lighting design by Angelo Linzalata. PINOCCHIO will be performed in Italian.
