Festival for people, object & circus
Magic, dance, sound art, juggling, film, acrobatics, DJ craft, music, cocktails and theater.
This year Object focuses on sound as object material.
Ranging from abstract movement studies to pieces of visual theater the program is filled with unique works and meetings with a diverse group of artists. Acrobatics producing the sound-score, theater work set to a film soundtrack and a music maker focusing on clashing incompatible sound ideas are just some picks from the diverse collection of events.
