Magical – mysterious full-evening work. Combining the dreamlike qualities of Fellini and the keen intellect of Pina Bausch, Inbal and Avshalom have created a fantastic circus-world of wandering street acrobats and oddly beautiful creatures. Performers and dancers in doll-like make-up, spiky blonde wigs, and tutus alternately become puppets or puppeteers – in one delightful scene, a girl in a bouffant dress becomes a ringing bell. The eclectic score spans opera (Pagliacci), tango (Piazzolla), Harry James Yma Sumac and Tuvan throat singers. Pinto’s unique movement encompasses ballet, contemporary, mime and acrobatics.
“Part surreal vaudeville, part circus, and part toy store after midnight. Whimsical… a delight for the eye.” NYC Village Voice
