La Verità is an acrobatic theatre show, written and directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, in which eleven artists come together before the backdrop which Salvador Dalí painted in 1940 for the production of Tristan and Isolde in New York.

The backdrop serves as a thread for Finzi Pasca in order to weave stories about immigrants in the New York of the 1940s, that of Tristan and Isolde themselves and that of a director seeking to raise the spirits of his troupe. La Verità pushes the physical skill of the company to the limit, in a display of surprising images, shadows which play fancifully, red blood, white; ladders suspended in the air, impossible balances, contortions; feathers and sequins… stories which come to life in a decadent Vaudeville in which the language of acrobatics stimulates our subconscious, making us see interior landscapes which appear to be more realistic than the actual ones.
