Balancealots – Link the Click
In an urge to connect with the environment, the two quirky & colorful individuals show the difficulty of learning to work together by trying to find the balance between the two extremes of social connection: the online and the offline presence.
They drag their wonky kart everywhere they go, bringing life to any street corner, through a complex mashup of skills and live beats to generate positive energy.
The show includes partner acrobatics, live music & comedy to create a spectacle that makes weirdness oddly normal.
Length 30 min Who is it suitable for? 4+
