Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus’, a work intended for children aged 7-11, is mainly based on the power of images, their magic and the sensations they provoke. The very unique set design allows for a playful and magical exploration into a game of appearances and disappearances of both bodies and accessories.

The brotherly relationship that develops between the two dancers constitutes the show’s guiding thread, both through the hardships they create for themselves to toughen themselves up and through the fantastic voyage that subsequently awaits them.

‘Hocus Pocus’ is one of the few contemporary dance works intended for a young audience. It seeks to challenge the imagination of its audience, while weaving a narrative that is open enough for each child to build his or her own story.

It can be performed twice a day, in complete darkness, and the work for adults ‘Vacuum’, which uses the same set design, can also be performed in parallel. The structure can be moved easily, meaning two-part days are possible. Furthermore, the show requires no light rigging.
