PREMIERS IN MAY 2022 – Cirque & Magie Nouvelle
This is the story of Professor Kap, a professor of the occult who travels with his show in search of the answer as to the origin of life, and with a chosen one who can free him and his “monster” from their bonds. Professor Kap is bound to his monster as to his own life.
Inseparable, they are forced to wander amongst the damned, doomed to seek their salvation in order to escape from hell.
Through the story of these two anti-heroes, we tell the story of touring shows from their origins to the present day, reinterpreting myth with a contemporary eye.
