Previous Shows


Restricted and on top of each other, literally, Wolfgang and Sven begin to feel out the spatial limits of their prison and, with engaging humour, the limits of themselves as they climb the walls, the roof and each other. From scenes of strength to incredible tenderness, little is said but all is revealed with an intense, claustrophobic clarity as the two finally begin to find ways to come to terms with their confinement and the unnatural intimacy forced upon them.

Part dance, part theatre, with incredible lighting design and original music, multi-award winning Pandora 88 is a hauntingly memorable and stunningly beautiful performance.
