The Great Paradox of Play

Three Nordic magicians, 40 pillows and one borrowed ring Rapid Eye


A magically playful performance that lets go of the seriousness and the rat-race. On the stage, old tricks are awakened in new disguises, with room for slowness and space to pursue the impulses of the moment. The performance is accompanied by a subtle live electro-acoustic soundtrack.

The Great Paradox of Play surprises, inspires, investigates and celebrates the purposeless play that is so fundamental to our human existence. With clever movements, the three magicians transform the stage into an illusory universe dedicated to play and magic.
