“On our planet, and nowhere else, live creatures called kan-garim.
And not just them, also their neighbors sham-garim.
And when a kan-gar meets a sham-gar, something very strange happens – the only thing a kan-gar can say is:
“But I was first! It’s mine! Only I’m allowed!”
And a sham-gar: same thing…
How will it work out in the end?”
Kan-garim is a new unique creation for the entire family that uses movement and material, and almost no words, to present us parts of the funny world of the kan-garim and sham-garim, different creatures that live side by side and are required to live together.
The play deals with the connection between yourself and the other, between alone and together, and stimulates abstract imagination and thinking of a child’s relationship with itself and the world.
Kan-garim makes special use of found materials and objects and elements from the acrobatic world to turn the stage into a fascinating playground for children and adults alike. The show inspires creative and broad thinking and is recommended for the whole family.
