Italy’s Compagnia TPO (Teatro di Piazza o d’Occasione) is a pioneering, multidisciplinary 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 to using parts of their bodies to embrace the five senses. Audience members may be invited to transition into the cocoon, to create a virtual painting or to sit for a rest on an oversized flower.


This performance is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council and The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation.
