The childcare centre opens 15 minutes before the start of the performance.
A track covered in white mud. In the middle there’s a smartly dressed juggler, who takes up the many challenges (keeping clean, avoiding slipping, and keeping your ball in the air), and his face displays ever more complex grimaces. Everything sticks, slips, and gets dirty.
It’s inevitable and even necessary for him to fall. As a two-legged creature, a human being has to fall in order to learn to stand up straight. Yet falling in the mud and getting covered with sludge: what a humiliation, or, perhaps, an unspeakable, secret, and infantile joy of messing around, rebellion, and primitive instinct?!
In this exciting act Nathan Israël juggles with a ball, mud, and our inconsistencies. Together with him, we feel how enjoyable it is to mess around with mud, we feel the thrill of the forbidden, and the joy of walking upright without falling.
