Aerial acrobatics, physical theatre and paper


We all have unreal dreams, but inside we still hope that maybe... it just needs to fullfil one thousand of tasks. One thousand times to wipe up the floor, one thousand of good deeds, one thousand of pull ups...? We ourselves are our own tasks and so we infinitely make our imprints in the time until we understand that it is better to watch from above.

Inspired by the theme of hibakusha - survivors of Hiroshima bomb attack, by the legend of one thousand cranes and by japanese aesthetics, but it is mainly about what will come into your mind during the show. We all have our own little war and our own tragedy.
