The struggle itself is enough to fill your heart: A lone man climbs a rope, higher and higher, driven to reach his limits and then compelled to let himself fall. With each movement, he reaches boundaries and possibilities, climbs further and further, struggles calmly and steadily, completely devoted. When he reaches extremes, he carries on regardless of danger and risk. As time passes, he slows down but never stops. He breathes, lives, knows, that nothing is certain.
French artist Fragan Gehlker acts out one of Albert Camus motifs, the story of Sisyphus, a man condemned by the gods of ancient Greece to roll a boulder up a mountain for eternity, only to have the bolder roll down again and again and again. Futile, yet those who watch his crusade of hope cannot help but imagine him happy.

We will not proclaim that our show is "poetic, funny and deep" or that it is "elegant, moving, breath-taking". We will not tell you that it is "carried by grace" or that it "stops time". So many other performances promised you these things that it would be hard for you to believe.

There is no fake humility here either, but you must come. There are only two performers and a few ropes, but it is well worth seeing and chances are you will use some of our descriptions yourself.
