The Daltons

The Daltons

KOPERGIETERY and Cie Pol & Freddy have pooled forces to make a witty  theatrical circus western for the entire family.
An almost wordless show full of slapstick, juggling and object manipulation.

The Daltons.  
Eternal bunglers, botchers and shirkers.
Always on the run.
Nobody has any idea where from.
Nobody has any idea where to.
Nobody has any idea why.

Having forced their way into somebody else’s massive house, they find themselves face to face with the tiny side to and inside themselves.
Rest and routine seem to finally have entered their lives.
Until the owner catches them redhanded...

Passion, popcorn and moustachioed men fly through the air. 
The goldfish suffers a depression.
And the only available bed suddenly seems awfully small...

A funny show about the beauty of failure, about friends, about embracing the unknown.
