Globe by Close-Act Theatre (NL)
24 Aug to 26 Aug
8pm - 8.30pm, 10.30pm - 11pm
GLOBE is a child’s perspective of the real world, where the central character creates a domain that transcends religion, esotericism and cultural traditions.
Using circus techniques, pyrotechnics, and video projection to create the visualization of liberty and the joy of flying, GLOBE is an alienating, fairylike spectacle full of symbolism.
GLOBE is presented in and around a large sphere. Props are exposed and accompanied with sound from all sides, reminiscent of a pop concert. The audience is, thus, literally part of the fantasy world created by Close-Act.
