Separated from the radiant stars on stage by nothing more than a sparse scenery the three untiring helpers are fighting for their own happiness in a different universe.
Theatre in the theatre!
A fantastic ensemble excels in breathtaking fighting scenes, deadly intrigues and heartbreaking arias of world-famous plays. Night by night they steer towards unprecedented triumphs. That is on one side. On the other side three stage technicians work in the backstages’ darkness. Their lives, which usually remain hidden, now recede into the light.
Familie Flöz has created a small family, whose home is the theatre itself: the efficient Bob is young, strong and unpredictable; the chronically tired and sickly Bernd is constantly bossed around and the idle, always hungry Ivan is permanently anxious not to loose control over the shows.
Separated from the radiant stars on stage by nothing more than a sparse scenery the three untiring helpers are fighting for their own happiness in a different universe. Yet in a magical way the glamorous world of pretence connects and is blended with the down to earth life backstage. TEATRO DELUSIO is once again the art to say everything without a single word.
★★★★★ Teatro Delusio is evocative and absolutely hilarious. Not many shows can make you bell laugh one moment and the next, cry over a sock puppet. – Edinburgh Guide
