Mittelfest — Circus

Sit back. Relax. Listen and watch. Let yourself go with the inevitable flow of what you perceive. Meditate, if you want. Immerse yourself in the evocative environment created by Kolja Huneck, expert juggler and creator of lights and colours, along with Rutger Zuydervelt’s sound compositions. Break out of the obsessive whirlwind of everyday life and enter a contemplative experience where you can relax and then plunge into an imaginative universe of colours, shadows, flying saucers (30 cm) and refractions.
