Sara Grotenfelt & Iida Hägglund: Magic Show

all ages Price: 10–20 € Length: 30 min. Language: non-verbal

Magic Show is a sort of spectacle where mundane objects get the attention they deserve. A magician and a bunny put themselves on display and do everything they can to keep the show going.

At the core of this work are magic shows, their dramaturgy, atmosphere and structure. During the working process we noticed that our interest in magic tricks lies not so much in the actual trick, the climax, but in preparation, build-up and expectations.

Whenever you find yourself in need of some magic, call us and we will come and lighten up your party.
