Dei Furbi company, inheritating the irreverent and provocative tradition of comedy, is defined from its beginnings by the way it creates collectively. Researching into a theatrical practice that looks  at  the  actor  as  the  centre,  subject  and  object  of  the dramatic action.

The company  highlights  its vitality,  energy and rhythm  in the use  of a broad  range  of acting  resources  such  as dance,  a cappella   singing,   fencing   and   masks   always   mixed   with physical  theatre  and classical  acting.  It’s career  is based  on creating through reviewing, updating and often corrupting universal themes in a tone that’s deliberately comical and at the same time profoundly human.

From  its  beginnings Dei  Furbi’s style full of  humor  and accuracy has connected with critics and audiences.
