Two circus performers create living sculptures out of everyday objects and their own bodies. Through acrobatics and magic, they find moments of balance, where almost everything is perfect and still. As this moment is quite fragile, it requires concentration but also a little bit of luck. With elegant movements the performers create installations where various elements have to interact and at the same time, they must keep all from falling apart. The story is not an ordinary story but is open for the child’s interpretation and imagination. Where are the characters? Maybe inside a giant paint bucket? A secret room? Or in a magical forest? The performance is about how imagination gives us an opportunity to go from nothing to something, from nowhere to anywhere. This is to encourage children to learn new things - things they did not know that they could possibly learn.
