Where do our thoughts originate from? Engel is a performance about inner struggle, decision making and the metaphysical. Witness an acrobat and a dancer merge into a physical dialogue where they raise questions about awareness through constant movement of weight, direction and motion.

Duration: 50 min
Language: A little bit of English, but text is not an essential part of the performance
Recommended audience: From 8 years and up

The artistic company
