After the incredible success of “L’Uomo dai Mille Volti” and of “Ciak si gira”, and the triumph of the recent tour of Canada and France Comedy Majik Cho, the “Italy’s most famous tuft” goes back to his birthplace, Italy, with a new extraordinary and unpredictable show: Brachetti Che Sorpresa!
Arturo is located in a place full of suitcases, boxes and trunks from around the world. A limbo both mysterious and fascinating, full of objects and stories collected on long trips and curious characters who stumbled there, somehow. Will Arturo find his lost red suitcase? To do so, like in a big videogame, he will face challenges and levels … just like life, right?
Arturo, the biggest change artist in the world, does not disappoint his audience and offers a “best of” of his quick change skills, an art he reinvented himself that made him famous and acclaimed everywhere in the planet: in the blink of an eye (maybe two) he is transformed before the eyes of the audience from hat to shoes. A kaleidoscope of characters made with great costumes or with only a few items to remind us that “with little you can do everything, just let yourself go to the imagination.”
Brachetti is a 360° artist, able to switch from transformation with other performances that will leave people in awe: the charm of shadow puppetry, the thrill of sand painting and much more.
Fellow adventurers its eclectic and unusual friends: Luca Bono, “blue eyes of the magic”, a young international talent of illusionism; Luca & Tino, hilarious, dazed and improbable artists, defined by the prestigious French daily Le Figaro the “Italian Laurel and Hardy”; Francesco Scimemi, as ingenious and unpredictable as he has ever been and Kevin Michael Moore, an alter ego of the protagonist.
There are two brand new acts: the laser, handled and shaped during the narration; and the stage is designed live with the innovative technique called video mapping, used for the first time in Italy in a variety show.
After the 2014 edition, directed by Davide Livermore, Brachetti che sorpresa 2015 is realized under the direction of David Calabrese and the artistic advice of Leo Ortolani.
The underlying theme is the illusionism, which Arturo interprets in a contemporary way: an amazing journey into fantasy in which the great artist, as a guide, will lead the audience by the hand.
Brachetti che sorpresa! was applauded in Italy from 38,000 spectators in the 2013/14 season.
