for everybody 5+

Germany premiere

Darkness and light. Two opposites with different pros and cons. The performers go on an exploratory journey through a dark tunnel: from curiosity to fear; from worries tot he overcoming of the own anxieties. The tunnel leads through a journey of confrontation, exploration and discovery of the dark side of the light. On the other side of the tunnel the performers found themselves back in another world, noticing quickly, that not the world changed, but themselves. Based on the animation of light and darkness, the performance creates a “playgroud for the dark”, creating images with strong associative and symbolic value.
