Dances of futility and repetition emerge, which also contain joy in a miraculous way.

Unfortunately, this show is cancelled!

Happy Sisyphos is a contemporary, playful choreography for young audiences inspired by the ancient Greek myth of the Sisyphus story. At the centre is the idea of a Sisyphus task as a winged word for a fruitless work that starts all over again with no foreseeable end. The audience accompanies three performers of different ages who perform endless, repetitive physical tasks with dedication. The material of their work consists of objects and their own bodies. They carry, pass on, build up and take down, form circles and chains. Dances of futility and repetition emerge, but they also contain joy.
