PAKMAN  lives  faster  than  a  mouse  can  click.  Drives  around  the  country  to  deliver  packages  –  always precisely on time. 1 package, 2 forms, 3 stamps, 6 autographs, 450 times a day, 159.750 packages a year and in return 10 holidays. PAKMAN is a sole and invisible man in our virtual economy. On board of his small truck, PAKMAN invites the audience for a rhythmical circus performance.  
PAKMAN  is a duel  between  the  rhythms  of juggler  Stijn  Grupping  and  drummer  Frederik  Meulyzer. Together  they explore  the hastiness  of ‘our’ time. How does this imposed  speed  oppose  our natural rhythms  such  as  breathing  and heartbeat?  Stijn  and  Frederik  let  the  rhythms  and  routines  of  their bouncing balls and drums dialogue. Their instruments harmonize and clash.
