In an urge to connect with the area, 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 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 portable show also includes partner acro, live music & comedy to create a show that will oddly normalise weirdness.
The main theme of the show is connection, which has many inspirations for the duo to work with and the audience can relate to. These days, everyone is connected to a phone, even one of the show's new props needs a mobile phone present to work on stage. They will explore this attachment and enhance the invisible weight that is created virtually by this small device, on stage. This show is a reflection of society through a black mirror but portrayed through circus and humour to inspire reconnection in the world.
