About this event

High-flying circus collides with outrageous comedy, serious skill and a little whimsy in this brilliant new work from Berlin-native Remi Martin.

Martin (star of LIMBO, Blanc de Blanc Encore) evolves before your eyes through childhood, adolescence and into the daily grind -- but it's not a serious show. It's pretty silly in parts. But such is life -- and so are rehearsals.

With extraordinary props, special effects and physically staged scenes with a blistering live soundtrack, this company of three create an odyssey of self-discovery and fantastic imagery to transport you into a dream like no other.

"An evening full of adventures, comedy, beautiful visuals and an excellent soundtrack...refreshingly unique." ArtConnect, 2016.

"A comedy of the body, breathtaking and elaborate, gentle and excessive. Dazzling, funny and moving. See it!" Tom Tykwer (film director).
