SOLO. The new one-man-show by Arturo Brachetti

The show

After almost 2 years of world tour from his last big success Brachetti che sorpresa! the new one-man-show by Arturo Brachetti starts his international tour in Italy.

With SOLO, a real solo of this great artist, Arturo Brachetti comes back to the stage after his last works ‘L’uomo dai mille volti’ and ‘Ciack!’, which have been enjoyed by over 2 million people from all over the world.

It is a comeback to the origins for Brachetti, since he will show us his home full of memories and fantasy, a house out of space and time where ‘above’ is ‘under’ and you will have to go down the staircase in order to go up.

Everyone has got a house like that within himself, where every room tells about a different aspect of ourselves and daily objects come alive taking us to extraordinary worlds where our fantasy is the only limit. It is a secret house without present, past and future where we store our dreams… Brachetti will open doors of each room to find out that the story inside them can come true on stage.

True and Fiction, Magic and Reality. Everything is possiblethanks to this big international maestro of the quick-change art, Arturo Brachetti, who is coming back with a surrealistic variety show where you can get lost and forget about rationality.

In this new show the main actor is the transformism, the art that has made him popular worldwide and that he will dominate turning himself into 50 new different characters. In SOLO Brachetti also proposes a tour into his artistic history through other fascinating disciplines that he masters: some old classic such as Chinese shadows, mime and chapeaugraphie and new ones like the poetic sand paintings and the magnetic ray laser. This mix between traditional set design and videomapping allows him to emphasize details and make the audience participate in the show.

From Magritte and pop music, from Matrix to fairy tales, Brachetti keep up the pace on stage: 90 minutes pure entertainment for everyone, a full family show.

The international SOLO tour starts in Italy and will touch international stages in the second half of 2017. It will be a real solo for one of the Italian most popular artists worldwide who, turning 60, comes back to the stage with full enthusiasm to give the audience his most complete present: SOLO.

Arturo Brachetti is an Italian artist, worldwidely famous and acclaimed. In many countries he is considered a living legend in the world of theater and visual performing art. He is also an attentive and passionate Director and artistic director, able to range from comic theater to musicals, from magic to variety shows.

Brachetti is now the best quick-change artist in the world, with a “gallery” of over 350 characters, 100 of which interpreted in one evening.

It is so fast that it has been included in the Guiness Book of Records, and its leadership still remains unbeaten. Arturo does not change color only the scope, but the whole character from shoes to hat, passing in the blink of an eye from Scarlett O’Hara to a mariachi, a diva of the Charleston to the Cossack on the bank of the Don.
