“The 3 Fairies of the Wind” is a commedia dell’arte tale for the whole family,
with music, masks and dance and audience interaction.

Ali, the famous sculptor, invites you in his garden, around a summer fire. Since the God of Wind entered his home, Ali’s life is completely upside down! Three fairies came into his life and are now dancing his days and nights. Ali’s routine and his reclusive life have changed indeed!

Tonight, with your help, he needs to come to a decision: which fairy amongst the three sisters, Zephyr, Sirocco and Tempest shall he keep? Ali needs you! Which dance, which mask and which color will you choose?

​This creation is written and performed by Doe Polanz, with three exclusive evolutive masks from Zorba Officine Creative (Andrea Cavarra).
