"The far Side" presents ironic and political myths, faithful to the absurdity of existence. The mosaic of live performances, electronic soundscapes and digital media creates a sensory experience, a place of encounter, emphasising the metamorphosis of bodies. A triptych of performance installations on futuristic cabinets of curiosities.

*"The company develops its research in an unconventional, iconoclastic and experimental way around surprising themes. In The Far Side, everything mixes together, from the scenography and costumes of bric-a-brac, astronauts and Chinese tales, a miniature golf course with a "Mummenschanz" revival or a christic figure embracing the world with a big "Hello World". The team's creativity seems limitless, unbridled and constitutes an artistic universe in itself very singular."* - Guillaume Guilherme, dance mediator & host at the Tanzhaus Zürich, jury member for the June Johnson Dance prize 2019
