When we were young we were fascinated by Karl Valentin's lanky figure, his humour, lyrics and films. Today, driven also by disturbing signals in the present we are living, we want to remember that surreal clown who told about the madness of a world on the verge of the abyss in last century's 30s in Germany. The idea is to try to recreate the atmosphere of the German cabaret of those years through a “work in progress”, a “study” for a show that walks between past and present in a funambolic way and that, through the physical presence of the actors, the magic of the shadow and live music, wanders among the spirits of the time.
Premiere in Turin on 7th cttober 2022, inside the program of INCANTI festival
