Photos: Helder Guimaraes' VERSO Celebrates a Magical Opening Night

Just last night, Helder Guimarães, one of the premier close-up artists of the world, opened his newest show for New York audiences. Verso is now playing at New World Stages (340 West 50th St. between 8th and 9th Avenues).

Intimate and enigmatic, witty and unorthodox, Verso is Helder's most daunting journey into the impossible yet. Bear witness as he pushes the very limits of magic, and challenges just how much you're willing to accept what your eyes assume to be true.

Verso is written and performed by Helder Guimarães and features Direction byRodrigo Santos, Creative Direction & Scenic Design by Catarina Marques, Lighting Design by Pedro Vieira de Carvalho, Original Music by Pedro Marques and Creative Consulting by Kelly Devine.

Verso had its world premiere in Portugal earlier this year playing the Teatro do Bolhão in Porto on January 14, 2016 and then the Teatro da Trindade in Lisboa on January 20, 2016. This will be the American premiere of Verso.

Verso is produced in New York by Rodney Rigby, Latitude Link, Eva Price, Kevin Kinsella, Alexis II Fund, David Lara, Barbara Manocherian, Richard Winkler/Heni Koenigsberg.
