Press release

Favole will introduce you to an Italy far removed from pizza, pasta and La Dolce Vita. Stories of love, mystery, tragedy and the occult told through magic by a DOC-certified Italian and laced with Davide's trademark humour, intoxicating charm and an accent that can only be real.

This show is dedicated to audiences interested in folklore and culture, willing to take a step away from the stereotypes and discover a rich tapestry of legends and unexpected traditions; told through magic and visual medias.

All supporting material and references can be made available to clubs and cultural groups interested in the show, alongside a great ticketing offer for large groups.

About Davide Kaufmann

... is an award-winning illusionist hailing from Italy and now based in Melbourne, Australia. Featured in Vogue Uomo as one of Italy's most popular magicians, he has performed throughout Europe and Australia. Davide's unique delivery of illusion, comedy and juggling has delighted audiences at a vast array of events, from corporate functions to variety shows.

He has performed for large corporations and charities such as the Starlight Children Foundation, Cancer Council Victoria and Make-A-Wish Foundation. Davide has also mentored a new generation of Italian magicians through the first online community of its kind, Magic School, created in 2009.

In 2012, Davide made the transition to performing in English, beginning with weddings and corporate shows for English-speaking expats on Lake Como. On his move to Australia, he collected a series of successes at Hobart's Only Theatre Restaurant (H.O.T.), TasPride and the Taste of Tasmania. He has since performed at agricultural shows in both Victoria and New South Wales, numerous corporate and public events, and in Incantato, his first solo performance series, which ran for more than a year in Melbourne.
