An expressive and playful visual show without words for audiences of all ages. An over the top romantic comedy in the style of a traditional silent movie. A man and a woman are suspended from rusty steel springs. They are limited in their freedom of movement, but within the limits the possibilities are limitless… In the 20 minute show the cliché about the relations between men and women is built up to a tragicomic love story: from the moment they meet, till the inevitable “and they lived happily ever after”.
Jos van Wees has worked as a street theatre maker and clown for 25 years. Merel Kamp has been involved in visual performance art since 2003. Four years ago they started working together and combined their art forms. This resulted in a unique visual language that appeals to audiences around the world.
