The life of butterflies is a magical journey from tiny egg to wriggling larva to silvery chrysalis to fluttering, flitting maturity. The theatrical sorcerers of this whimsical Italian troupe invite exploration into a virtual, multi-sensory world where the whirring sound of wings beating is mixed with glints of sunshine and pops of digital imagery. Visitors will discover a vibrant atmosphere of ever-changing landscapes populated by farfalle friends, two dancers, and the audience itself in an enchanting trip through this astonishing realm.
 
Our SF programming presents performances in a relaxed, sensory-friendly way. Performers will modify shows to ensure there are no startling noises or visually over-stimulating components. Our team keeps sound levels lower than normal and keeps the lights in the audience higher than normal, ensuring audience members can see each other. Audience members are free to come and go if need be (there is always a "safe room" available) and are asked to wave hands rather than clapping.
