Compagnia TPO: Panda's Home

Francesco Gandi and Davide Venturini, artistic direction

This renowned Italian theatre company has inspired Krannert Center audiences with tales of butterfly metamorphoses, trips to the Arctic Circle, and splashes in the Mediterranean Sea. Its latest interactive piece, Panda’s Home, climbs into a metaphorical journey through Chinese culture. Bamboo forests creak and sway, fireworks light up the sky, lanterns glow, kites soar in the skies, and across the interactive, multimedia “carpet,” the beauty and diversity of the Chinese landscape is elegantly revealed.

Recommended for ages 2 and up

Because of this performance’s special staging, audience members will be asked to remove their shoes.
