Babel, Glöm


Syncretic circus with coffee, cake and magnesium

They try together to be better, to ” reach the sky “. It’s about links, community or family. And yes, they are definitely not the same people. They don’t even speak the same langage. Babel’s curse? Forget it! They’ll do better no matter what happens. By chance, they have Fika*.

Kaaos Kaamos intends to explore the tension between ” be yourself ” and ” be together “. For that, they use six strong characters in a quest for a common language: the body ; a common ritual: the food ; a common symbol: the magnesium.

*Fika: the strong swedish tradition of having coffee and something sweet, usually shared with a colleague or friend in the afternoon.
