One man’s imagination transforms piles of papers, looming towers, and giant gears into a vibrant, romantic, and lavish cityscape. He is joined by twelve eclectic and mysterious characters rebelling against monotony in a wildly energetic show that twists and turns between acrobatic prowess, heartrending poetry, and irresistible humor. The multi-disciplinary talents of these twelve performers will be on full display in several advanced acrobatic disciplines, including diabolo, rope, teeterboard, Cyr wheel and contortion. Guided by striking projections that add dizzying dimensions to pivoting set pieces, performers and spectators will slip between dream and reality in an uninterrupted stream of music, images, drawings and mind-bending acrobatics
