Premiere of Kallo Collective & Krepsko Theatre Group’s new creation: Edgar’s Echo (Paraphernalia of E. Cuthwellis). The premiere takes place on August 21, 2013 at Cirko – Center for New Circus, in Helsinki, Finland.
Edgar’s Echo, a poetically playful cooperation between two international theatre-circus groups is partially inspired by the life and work of Lewis Carroll. It offers its own wonderland where strange things happen and the seemingly impossible becomes true – thanks to elements of circus, puppetry and other illusions.
Edgar’s Echo’s performances are part of the Helsinki Festival and Cirko Pikkolo Festival, taking place on August 22–25, 2013. The event offers performances and workshops for young audiences and families.
The hunt for rare moments and species becomes a fantastic mathematical puzzle of a performance on the discoveries of a certain Edgar, and the unusual correspondence between Bruno and Sylvia. But who after all is this Edgar?
