Romania – Teatro dei Venti guest of the Sibiu International Theatre Festival

The theatre company based in Modena presents two street shows, “Il Draaago” e “Simurgh”, on 13th and 14th June

The Sibiu International Theatre Festival represents, besides a celebration of arts, a perfect combination of theatre, dance, circus, movie, book, conferences, exhibitions, performance, music. A “performing art market” also takes place, in order to facilitate connections between festivals and artists, performing arts independent companies or public institutions.

The theatre company Teatro dei Venti participates with two street shows.

“Il Draaago”, loosely based on the philosophical fairy tale by Evgenij Schwartz, reproduces the fairy and hellish atmosphere of the original text by mean of a five-meters dragon, stage machinery and other mobile sets, stilts, fire-breathers, giant masks.... A small town is under the dragon’s power and a stranger knight tries to defeat it.

“Simurgh”, based on the Persian poem “The Word of Birds” written by Farid al­-Din 'Attar in 1177, tells the story of birds fallen from the “bird town” to the earth and of the rising of Simurgh, their guidance. Amongst challenges, accidents, brave flights, funny falls, songs, dances and acrobatics, eight actors and two musicians narrate a myth from the Middle East.
