‘52’ by Compagnia Finzi Pasca Created in Collaboration with Pablo Gershanik Completes Swiss Tour

‘52’ by Compagnia Finzi Pasca created in collaboration with performance artist Pablo Gershanik completes Swiss tour.

"In 2017, following a healing process, Pablo Gershanik, a long-time collaborator of the Compagnia Finzi Pasca, designs a maquette of his hometown La Plata (Argentina) by building in miniature several scenes that occur simultaneously on a crucial date, questioning himself on how art can cure a personal and collective drama by creating a process of resilience. The result obtained is of such great value that the Compagnia, together with Pablo, decides to transform this research and this experience into a theatrical performance. “52 is the number of a street that does not exist in the plan imagined by visionary urban planners. It is the reconstruction of a night where a father, doctor, rugby player is murdered by a group of hit men, it is also the description of a method that Pablo discovered in one way and that we invented with the Compagnia on the other to bring out stories that cure. We stage the contemporaneity of events, we try to tell complex themes with the lightness of a feather. ” – Daniele Finzi Pasca, April 2021"
