FIVE masked artists are using their body to tell a story inspired by the Italian theatrical form of Commedia Dell’Arte.

The Magic Drink, which opened with two performances on Thursday night at El Mercado Mall, Saar and in Adliya, is part of the Spring of Culture festival.

The fast-paced performance tells the story of a doctor who invents a magic drink portrayed through the traditional characters of Commedia, while the original play is directed and created by Yuliya Stelmashonok.

A series of comic conflicts begin as everyone wants this magic drink, and they are resolved with a twist.

Performances continue at Amwaj Lagoon, Amwaj Islands today at 4.30pm and 6pm.

Entrance is free and visit www.springofculture.org for further information.
