Cirque du Soleil may be boycotting North Carolina thanks to HB 2, but you don't have to wait for repeal to escape into acrobatic fantasy. This week, Carolina Performing Arts presents La Verità, written and directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, who has an interestingly subversive perspective on modern circus theater. In 2005, he created Cirque's Corteo, in which a clown observes his own merry funeral. La Verità, now on tour, pays homage to no less an iconoclast than Salvador Dalí, with acrobats performing music, juggling, dancing, and twisting their bodies among fantastic set pieces that evoke the surrealist artist's stark, dreamlike imagery. Described as "a decadent Vaudeville channeling of Dalí's vision," it also has something of his mad, louche charm, and is sure to bring a bit of wonder to a place that could certainly use some. —Brian Howe
