About this show

In The Butterfly Garden, Italian theater company T.P.O. experiments with computer graphics and digital technologies to create a thrilling new experience in participatory theater. With the children's cheering carpet -- a ground-breaking device that uses touch sensors -- a stage is transformed into a magical landscape from which beautiful botanical images, rainforest sounds and brilliant prisms of color emerge in every direction in response in real-time response to dancers' movements. Even bigger thrills come when young ones from the audience are invited to touch and explore the glowing interactive garden themselves.
