Director, author, choreographer, and clown Daniele Finzi Pasca was born in Lugano, Switzerland in 1964. In 1983, he moved to India, where he worked as a volunteer looking after the sick. Upon returning to Switzerland, Finzi Pasca's lifelong fascination with clowning led him to establish Teatro Sunil and to co-create with Maria Bonzanigo the theatrical technique known as "teatro della carezza." Subsequent career highlights include Icaro, a monologue he interpreted and performed for more than 20 years in six different languages around the world; the creation of 25 shows with Teatro Sunil; and writing and directing Nomade and Rain for Cirque Eloize. The success of Rain on Broadway (2005) led to a Cirque de Soleil commission to write and direct Corteo; in 2006, Finzi Pasca created and directed the closing ceremony for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino. In 2009, along with Julie Hamelin, he co-founded Inlevitas, a company for the development of new film and opera projects. Moscow's Chekhov International Theatre Festival commissioned Finzi Pasca to create a work celebrating the 150th anniversary of Chekhov's birth; Donka: A Letter to Chekhov premiered on January 29, 2010 at Moscow's Mossovet Theatre. In 2011, he united Teatro Sunil and Inlevitas under the umbrella of Compagnia Finzi Pasca, alongside long-time collaborators Antonio Vergamini, Hugo Gargiulo, Julie Hamelin, and Maria Bonzanigo.
