Description

Presented by The Fox & Beggar Theater.

The Italian tradition of Comedia dell’arte grows strange wings in "Tarocco: A Soldier’s Tale," a mesmerizing fusion of circus arts, dance, mask-and-puppet theater, original music, elaborate costumes, and stunning animation. "Tarocco" tells the story of an Italian WWI infantryman, trapped behind enemy lines after barely escaping the gas attacks at Caporetto. To pass the time, the soldier comforts a dying comrade with stories using the images from an ancient deck of playing cards known as the Tarocco Piemontese (a predecessor of modern Tarot cards). What follows is a spellbinding and dark narrative based on the Fool’s Journey of the Tarot.
