Past event

a delightful dancing dive into the bottomless imagination of childhood  

They are there. Hidden behind the scenery. You sometimes see them too, just look: an arm, a leg, a hand. Or would you rather see wings, antennae and stilts? In your imagination you can because anything is possible there! 

Three dancers play with the laws of gravity, complement the bodies of the figments of imagination drawn on the screen, bring these strange creatures to life. 

It was always a typical childhood dream to play with sheets, drawings and figures. And it is still children's dream. Proof of that is this wonderful, visual and surprising show about dreams and optical illusions that also fool us! Look, see what you see, see what is there?
