The near future. Large parts of the world have become uninhabitable. We’re trying to make the best of it, ‘juggling with life’. In search of a new rhythm, a new sound, a new balance.

PUINBAL is a provocative, musical juggling performance, raising questions about how we humans are dealing with our planet and each other. What if we cannot change enough? Do we bury our heads in the sand, or will we spread our wings?

Again, we work with special, self-built objects that are both musical instrument and juggling prop. Beats and rhythms are created by juggling shakers, metal tubes, electronics balls filled with motion sensors, as well as newspapers, plastic bags and old jerrycans. Throwing and catching is a world of sound, an unprecedented symphony of juggling.

In an attempt not to make any more human junk, PUINBAL is produced sustainably as much as possible. Instruments, decor and costumes are recycled from thrift stores, from our shelves, or borrowed from other companies. CO2-exhaust will be compensated for.
