Favole, storytelling magic MMF 2019 - Press Kit


Media Contact: Davide Kaufmann,

Announcing Davide Kaufmann return at the Melbourne Magic Festival with Favole, bringing to life the folklore of italian songs and stories, translated into English for the very first time.

One night only, Thursday 4 July 2019, 6:45pm (Running time: 50 minutes)

Sawtooth Studio, 35 Johnston Street, Collingwood, Victoria

Melbourne Magic Festival

Favole will introduce you to an Italy far removed from pizza, pasta and La Dolce Vita. Stories of love, mistery, 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.

A show for all the family and audiences 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.

Davide is available for interviews in print, digital or media broadcast.

About Davide Kaufmann

Davide 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, as well as charity organisations, such as Starlight Children Foundation, Cancer Council Victoria and the 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.
