Teatro Pavana

Founded in 1993, in Venice, Teatro Pavana, a small, but professional street theatre company, has developed into a large and much sought-after troupe in the course of time. The ensemble evolves continuously and presents new acts on a regular basis. Teatro Pavana, which keeps office in Amsterdam nowadays, engages experienced artists of different nationalities and backgrounds. While watching their marvellous acts one sees several theatre disciplines united: stilt-walkers, acrobats, musicians and dancers bring the most splendid and fantastic creations to life. With their breath taking costumes, they capture the audience in their magical, alien world. Spectators of all ages will be surprised by the impressive appearances of Teatro Pavana.

Walk-acts / Performance

Teatro Pavana has begun striding streets and parks in 1993 and never stopped moving since. On this website you can find some stages of this ongoing fantastic journey, the magic creatures, the colors, the fabrics, the masks and the artists who brings them to live and, equally important, those who patiently cut, sew, and paint their costumes. We believed, back in 1993, in our fantastic dreams and decided to transform these to reality by creating Teatro Pavana.
