Compagnie Chaliwaté and The Focus Company present BACKUP

The wait is over, after two years of postponement at bOing! Festival, Compagnie Chaliwaté and The Focus Company bring Back Up to the stage!

North Pole, 4 am. Under a snowstorm powerful enough to wrestle with a sequoia, a used-up van finds its way across the icecap. Three reporters land on the ice as if stepping on the moon for the first time. A bear stares straight at them. The team gets ready…

A magical journey to the North Pole featuring breath-taking puppetry and a creative mix of theatre and video – recommended for ages 8+.
