THINGS at the End of the World is a dance performance about the relationship between human beings and nature, offering a mesmerizing experience for all ages.

In a game of closeness and distance, the audience in invited on stage to witness a dance of fascinating THINGS that resemble rocks and nature.

Guided by the movements of the performers, these THINGS come to life with their own unique personalities and rhythms. From the playful antics of the “fury ball”, to the siren presence of the “slime”, and the “little stones” mysteriously moving by themselves when you don’t expect. Every THINGS offers a new perspective, awakening the imagination of the audience.

Through this diverse landscape of objects, THINGS at the End of the World sparks a sense of wonder and curiosity, inviting viewers too contemplate their relationship with nature without reducing it to mere commodities.

With visionary tenderness and subtle humor, this performance gently encourages a deeper appreciation for the natural world, inspiring both young and old to approach the unknown with respect and care.

“Once again Zinola proves that he is the magician of children's theater. The fact that he also captivates adults its a plus… "

“And through its dramaturgy alone, this little performance also provides an answer to the question of how to approach what is not yet familiar: namely slowly, respectfully and with growing courage."
