The future is not what will happen, but what we will make happen
Five acrobats, an opera singer and two live musicians immerse you in a ritual of movement, an experience that stimulates all your senses. On the edge of your seat you will be transported into this intimate tent performance in which strangeness, extreme proximity and fear are not shunned. A world where equality reigns and where words are unnecessary. Here circus carries the voice.
