MASSIMILIANO FINAZZER FLORY BRINGS FUTURISM ON STAGE IN HOUSTON

Houston – on June 3 at 7 pm St Thomas University will host the only Texas performance of A Great Futurist Evening by Massimiliano Finazzer Flory, who will return to Houston for the third time after his successful performance of “I Promessi Sposi” and “Pinocchio”.
The spirit of this performance, which is presented by the Consulate General of Italy in Houston, Giorgio and Cathy Borlenghi, Hotel Granduca, University of St Thomas, the Italian Cultural and Community Center and Acqua di Parma, is presented in the words of Massimiliano Finazzer Flory:

Why do we want to bring Futurism to the stage?
Because it's part of our history.
Because we are in love with the transcendent tomorrow.
Because we believe in the wireless imagination.

Theatre is life. Life is movement. Movement is Futurism.
A Great Futurist Evening depicts the life, the movement, the power and the habit of energy that the Futurists demanded from Italy, a country that had, perhaps, already lost the “love of danger and fearlessness”.

Massimiliano Finazzer Flory examines the power of affirmation, of fantasy, and of technological civilizations with words of freedom and imagination. He becomes the “athlete of the heart” taking on the role of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and his Futurist Manifestos. Without Marinetti there would be no Futurism.

Finazzer Flory also gives a voice to Giovanni Papini, one hundred years after the publication of his controversial and fledgling magazine Lacerba. Papini worked against a useless admiration of the past in favour of the young generation.

An intense, incendiary performance, that touches the identity of man, at the heart of which voice and body come together to sing, “the great crowds agitated by work, pleasure and revolt”.
