Marmalade is a delicious, tactile performance about meeting, mixing and blending. With poetic movements and circus actions, both adults and children will be treated to an exquisite and visual experience by the performers. Marmalade looks at the world through body, eye, feeling and taste in a room with fluffy skirts, soft circus and Fellini music.
Marmalade has performed over 500 shows in fifteen different countries such as the U.S, Singapore, Japan, Africa, Russia, Europe and Cuba! In the fall of 2017, the company performed twenty sold-out performances at the prestigious The New Victory Theatre in New York. In 2020, Marmalade continues on its fantastic journey around the world!
