Information and Tickets
This Crazy Show is a reflection on the quest for love, while revisiting a world where a child like imagination and reality is king.
What is it to be hammered, or pressed out of shape without breaking? What is it to be pliable, ductile, de-formed and re-formed, without losing our inner selves? This Crazy Show is an eccentric exploration of the boundaries of representation, and the instability and mutability of both body and identity.
