About

A fun-filled dance performance for young audiences from the Netherlands! 

Spin into a universe of orbiting chairs and surprises.


Take a seat in a rolling office chair and observe an ordinary space transform into a universe full of surprises and twists. Dance/theater company Woest from the Netherlands brings this interactive show in which the interplay between performer and spectator is the nucleus around which everything orbits. As a world builds from nothing to something, audience members take part in balancing playfulness and organization, young and old, foolishness and seriousness, and more.

Most enjoyed by 9+. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
