Rapid Eye: The Great Paradox of Play
Three Nordic Magicians, 40 pillows and one borrowed ring.
This ‘magie nouvelle’ performance takes as it’s starting point the art of magic and the homo ludens; the playing human. Magic blends with choreography in this mind bending universe, and creates a stringent visuality. Perfectly underlined by the baroque costumes and the minimalistic setdesign. Musically supported by a live electroacoustic soundtrack.
THE GREAT PARADOX OF PLAY wants to surprise, to inspire, to question, to celebrate and ultimately to bring into our lives the purposeless play, which is so fundamental for our human existence.
