This magic performance takes as it’s starting point the art of magic and the playing human. Do you realise the secrets behind the magic tricks on stage? Do you recognize the contagious playfulness of the pillow fight? The Great Paradox of Play wants to surprise, to inspire, to question, to celebrate and ultimately to bring into our grown up lives the purposeless play, which is so fundamental for our human existence.
The performance shows skillful movements by some of the best Nordic Magicians. Beautifully underlined by the baroque costumes and the minimalistic setdesign. Musically supported by a vivid live electroacoustic soundtrack.
