Cheating, body magic and classical music

It’s nothing but cheating and deception, when juggler SamuelGustavsson, a mime artist and a classical ensemble seduces the audience in the performance CHORD inspired by the emerging spiritualism in the 1800-century. Objects changes magically and acts of dissapearing, dance and improvised music creates an illusion of a higher power. And just when the audience is led in to the illusion, CHORD reveals itself and erase every form of mystery. 

CHORD is inspired by the worlds first spiritual superstars and magical illusionists: The Fox Sisters from 1800-century. The succesfull medias travelled in the USA until they rewealed their tricks in front of a full theatre. But shortly after they were on the road again.

CHORD blows any genre designation playing with magical illusions, object manupulation, juggling, dance and classical music. CHORD looks into our urge of believing the lie, event though we all know it’s nothing but cheating and deception.

Unique timing and precision in every move.  Herning Folkeblad
