Being Leonardo Da Vinci, An Impossible Interview 7:00 PM

The show is Leonardo’s true life portrayed on stage. Discovering the story behind Leonardo, the painter, the scientist, the inventor. His authentic language, his secrets, methods of working, passions. Renowned Italian director and actor Massimiliano Finazzer Flory's latest project brings the immensely multi-talented Leonardo da Vinci to life again on the stage.

Being Leonardo da Vinci is a one-act play, which uses theater to stage the Italian genius's true life, art history and science. Through the format of an impossible interview, Finazzer Flory "physically" becomes Leonardo. Dressed in period costumes and wearing make-up which reconstructs da Vinci's face, he performs in Renaissance language original texts written by Leonardo himself, among which is the famous "Trattato di pittura" (Painting Treatise). Finazzer Flory's Leonardo answers questions about his childhood, his civil and military activities, and how to become a "good painter" (bono pittore), and about the relationship between Painting and Science, Painting and Sculpture, Painting and Music. He comments on "The Last Supper" and the figures of the apostles, replies to his enemies' attacks, prophesies man's flying, and finally offers maxims and aphorisms to live by in our times.

Cultural Center of the Philippines

Cultural Center of the Philippines

The Cultural Center of the Philippines was created in 1966 through Executive Order no. 30, with the purpose of promoting and preserving Filipino arts and culture. It was formally inaugurated on September 8, 1969, starting a three month long inaugural festival opened by the epic musical Dularawan. Since then, the CCP has sought to truly embody its logo of katotohanan (truth), kagandahan (beauty) and kabutihan (goodness). The best artists from all over the country and around the world have graced the CCP theaters and galleries, enthralling Filipinos for over thirty years.
