“Compagnie Ea Eo impressively manages to create a dramaturgically very layered performance, masterful in every kind of play. Stop 'interpreting': it's all about the fun!” Henri Drost
Length: 55 minutes
From age of 9
“All the fun” is a powerful and original juggling ritual of five sweating bodies, that tries to find the answer to the existential questions of life. It's a tribute that serves no purpose. It's a tribute to tributes that serve no purpose.
Use or necessity? Completely unimportant.
Captivating, full of energy and unique, the five artists play for one hour masterfully, gracious and childish but completely and utterly useless. It is really all about the fun!
We shall start a rave party that holds 4 chapters.
Chapter 1 shall be a rain dance, that won’t bring any rain.
Chapter 2 shall be a trance at 170bpm with 1000 confetties.
Chapter 3 shall happen in a swamp and the imagination.
Chapter 4 shall be the one for the vital throw, the one that will hit the floor instead of us, so we won’t die.
The company Ea Eo was founded in 2009 and has since toured absurdly successfully around the world. Juggling and rotten jokes are the heart of the company and the 2 languages that form their particular vocabulary.
