Video 10/28/2018: And Then...

And Then... is a dance and soft circus expressed performance in a polyphonic and imaginary world. Four characters meet to tell and present their story in different ways—objects roll around, things move, and perspectives change through dance, speech, and song. And Then... is a suggestive puzzle, a playful treasure hunt, and a riddle.

Presented as a part of Kids Euro Festival.
