DURATION: ABOUT 90′
logo brachetti

SOLO is a 90 minute surrealist show made of magic, illusions, lights and lasers. 10 scenes featuring over 50 characters, all of them brought to life by the talent of the great Italian quick-change artist Arturo Brachetti. Arturo shares with the audience his fantasies and dreams through the exploration of a miniature house, an allegory for the memories that each of us stores inside safe corners of the heart and mind. With the help of a cameraman the house becomes a set which Arturo invites the public into, 7 different rooms, each associated with a specific memory or theme, that Arturo wanders through with his illusions and transformations.
