Welcome to our Road to Panama 2020. Take a seat on stage, enjoy a drink and a snack. And meet the performers of Panama Pictures alongside with young talents who will present an energetic mix of artistic and acrobatic acts.

Feel them swing above your head, experience their physical devotion, taste the excitement and become part of an exceptional adventure. Road to Panama is a spectacular journey beyond the boundaries of dance and circus. An intimate experience that touches and surprises, with three brand new pieces – each unique in atmosphere and content.

In the rope-act Sometimes it’s not your fault, Fynn Neb and Crispin Bade are having an exciting meeting in the air. Hanging and climbing on two ropes, they challenge each other, provoke each other’s confidence and find each other – from still to explosive, from alone to together.

Nothing is what it likes in A perfect deal. Like shady bankers, the juggling men-in-suit Francesco Barba, Cal Courtney and Fabian Krestel make balls appear and disappear. They manipulate your perception while you are witnessing from close by. Are they each other’s accomplices or opponents? Charlatans or companions?

The new acrobatic duet by Francesco Barba and Tarek Rammo is intense and powerful. With their excellent partnering technique, they know how to blend into each other’s bodies, creating a gripping and sensational reality in which gravity seems to have disappeared forever.
