Enter the world of Marmalade, a delicious, tactile performance about meeting, mixing and blending. What is marmalade? Is it cherries, pear, fig, mint, upside down, together or inside? With poetic movement, soft circus, stunning visuals and interaction with the audience, two dance performers invite the audience to feel, taste and think about what marmalade can be.

Exquisite, innovative and charming, the act is embedded in “red tones that echo in the spatial balls and pouffy skirts” stirring imagination, reaction and delight from its very young audience. During the performance, the audience is asked to use all of their senses.

“What I enjoy about the work is its perfectly balanced interaction with the audience, always playful but never overwhelming. The elegance and warmth makes it a beautifully played out lullaby.”
