High-wire walker and visual artist Chiara Marchese pulls the strings of this story, in an attempt to express the instability of the material and spiritual world. With the help of a life-size puppet, she ties knots between the stage and the audience, plays with everyday objects, despite constant tremors.

Thursday 21 at 6pm meeting with the artists after the show.
