"The Crisis of Imagination" – A Spectacular Show Combining Circus and Theatre at 360°

The Theatre of Digital Art (ToDA) presents "The Crisis of Imagination," an exhilarating and award-winning mix of circus and theatre at 360°, set to mesmerise the audience on the 27th and 28th of October.

Featuring the incredible talents of RAUXA CIA, a renowned performance duo from Catalonia, Spain, "The Crisis of Imagination" invites attendees to embark on a remarkable journey into the depths of human imagination, challenging the boundaries of reality and fantasy. This one-hour theatrical experience promises to leave audiences of all ages enchanted, just as it has done at numerous festivals around the world. From captivating audiences at the Festival de Títeres Al Sur in Argentina to enthralling spectators at UP Festival in Belgium and wowing crowds at Festival Fringe in Israel, RAUXA CIA has left an indelible mark on the global festival circuit. And now, their captivating performance is making its way to Dubai, promising to bring the magic and wonder that has charmed audiences worldwide to this vibrant city.

The show introduces a captivating narrative where two adults unexpectedly rediscover their childhood imagination, momentarily transcending into a world where the impossible becomes possible. While this enchanting realm vanishes, they come to realise that the boundary between reality and imagination is solely defined by one's perspective.

Join the protagonists in an exploration of the intricate nuances of human relationships within an exquisitely minimalistic imaginary world that invites you to craft your own mental landscapes. The show, with its touching, absurd, and profoundly sincere storytelling, resonates with universal themes such as the boundless nature of children's imagination, wordless storytelling, simplicity, and humour that transcends language barriers.

With just two performers, one staircase, and helium-filled balloons, "The Crisis of Imagination" promises an enthralling escapade away from the mundane into a realm of endless possibilities. This unique mindfulness practice is suitable for adults and children alike, offering a contemporary theatrical experience like no other.

"As ToDA's managing director, I am delighted to share that we are truly pleased to finally bring modern European theatre to Dubai. It is a testament to the universal language of art and creativity, and we look forward to offering this unique experience to the Dubai community,” remarks Daria Prodaevich.

Don't miss your chance to immerse yourself in a world of boundless imagination!
