Compagnia TPO — Farfalle

more information  Know Before You Go

Italy’s Compagnia TPO (Teatro di Piazza o d’Occasione) is a pioneering, multi-disciplinary performance group that melds music, dance, art, sculpture, digital media, lighting, and sound into a one-of-kind, interactive experience. In a brilliantly staged story, Farfalle loosely follows the life cycle of a butterfly — from egg to caterpillar. In this intimate, family-friendly show, each member of the audience participates in a variety of ways — from composing songs and lullabies with their feet, to chasing caterpillars on their bottoms, to using parts of their bodies and the five senses. Audience members may be invited into the cocoon, to create a virtual painting with their arms, or to sit for a rest on an oversized flower. Compagnia TPO makes its Texas debut with these performances.

A delightful hour-long show. Farfalle has a wonderfully inviting atmosphere, offering a sensory feast that embraces the audience with both sights and sounds.
