For the opening of the festival we present the great 7 Fingers from Canada (Reversible, Cuisine & Confessions, Sequence 8, PSY) and show with PASSAGERS their newest electrifying mix of circus, theatre, illusion, music and dance.
Strangers meet on a train. Even though they have different destinations, for one suspended moment they exist in a shared reality. They see-saw between looking back at the past and hopes for the future – and as they do so their compartment becomes the scene for a series of revelations. Illustrated with projections of the landscape that is flying past and underscored with the rhythmic sighs of a locomotive, the stage becomes a platform for an exciting story of escapes and encounters both small and large. The merging of dance, theatre, music and acrobatics of the highest quality enables us to experience a rousing expansion of the boundaries of live theatre.
