A circus adventure for young and old alike

Gelsomina is funny, clever and hates rules. And if she follows any, then only her own. Her friend believes he knows how theatre works, what it needs and what it doesn't. But these notions turn Gelsomina's world upside down and inside out. Together, the two discover that the stage is much more than just a black hole with curtains: but an ingenious magic box with endless possibilities for daring acrobatics, versatile dancers and clownish figures. In this imaginative family play, Swiss multi-artist Martin Zimmermann brings together two circus artists and the Basel ballet ensemble, thereby taking us on a journey into a visually stunning, Fellinesque universe.

A co-production of Theater Basel and MZ Atelier in cooperation with Tanzhaus Zürich
