A duo performance that interweaves juggling with aspects of dance, theatre as well as classically inspired music. Two jugglers encounter a disenchanted humanity and make the utopian demand for a poetry-filled society. With their juggling show about the genius of the impossible and the belief in fantasy, they transform the stage for half an hour into a fantastic magic theatre full of sorcery and beautiful appearances.
