James Thierrée returns with his latest critically acclaimed creation, featuring a seamless mix of mechanical marvels, music, surreal humour and acrobatic finesse.

Step into the wonderfully weird world of multi-talented performer and director James Thierrée.

Six characters emerge in a strange fairy-tale lair. A woman transforms into a lizard, a piano plays itself, and plates magically appear and disappear. In the middle of it all James Thierrée works his magic with the aid of a servant, only to have it undone by a man beast, and aerialist Thi Mai Nguyen and contortionist Valérie Doucet spin their tricks.

★★★★ "A spellbinding mix of ravishing visuals, seductive music and breathtaking acrobatics" THE GUARDIAN
