The beat is on in this game of musical ping-pong! An off-the-wall mix of circus and rhythm!
The stage is the size of a truck. Inside, anything can (and does!) become a drum: the walls, the table, even the ceiling! Thanks to the breathtaking beat masters running the show, theatre serves another knockout blow to the drab monotony of everyday life.
We received a box from Europe containing a whole show! You wouldn’t believe all the wild and wonderful things we found when we opened it! So we quickly closed it again so you could enjoy the same surprise. Okay, here are two clues while you’re waiting: #1: An astonishing micro-stage, like a mini-factory, a little beige, that becomes a totally infernal rhythm machine! #2: Two employees work there: one turns into a juggling musician, the other into an animal-drum. Because, let’s face it, art makes everything more fun!
