Two performers, four bodies. Kaleiding is a meditative spectacle between hypnotising shapes and new perspectives onto contemporary partner acrobatics. With a big mirror as the stage Lily&Janick invite the audience on a journey into a seemingly perfectly balanced world, which feels like a long glance through a kaleidoscope. But what happens, when not everything is as perfect as it seems. If you bring light into darkness and something shifts? How do we cope with changes in our environment and how long can we hold onto something irreparable?

Kaleiding premiered in September 2023 at Korzo in the Hague. It was created in 2023, with a laboratory phase in 2022. 

Bookings are open for 2024-25 and 2025-26.
