A thingamaBoBBish theatre-circus comedy.
Created and performed by Jens Altheimer
Squaring the Wheel combines circus, clown, strange mechanisms and contraptions, puppetry, magic and music into an unusual, thingamabobbish theatre extravaganza.
A flying broom, two ugly screaming babies, 17 balls, 34 meters of bent steel, 483 welded points and 15 marching eggs are just the tip of the iceberg of unexpected, transformed wacky materials and objects.
Unpredictable, funny, touching, highly visual and occasionally out of control, it is a clever theatre adventure for the whole family in thinking out of the box.
Topsy-turvy ways to look at things, teamed with imagination, transform a pile of junk into a resourceful repository of gadgets and circus props, into life and friendship supporting odds and ends …all done in an hilarious and ultimately very human way of complicating simple things.
Following the 10 am shows, stay for an interactive workshop into the science behind the wacky contraptions and get inspired to build your own little universe of pulleys, catapults and chain-reaction machines back home.
Devised and performed by Jens Altheimer.
