CURRENT SHOWS

"PANORAMA: KINO THEATRE"

To see not just look.....to experience not just sense"

Panorama redefines the theatrical experience as it rotates 360 degrees around its own axis...transforming reality into fantasy, provoking our senses and re-mystifying the world we inhabit.

Through a window, the audience experiences the world outside. As the music starts & the structure rotates, that world starts to change, evolve, abstract. The general public find themselves becoming an integral part of creating the story. The observer is no longer simply a consumer of theatre, but a co-creator of it.
  • “Reality blurrs into fantasy...it's like a dream".

Direction: Tom Greder & company
Best suited for site-specific urban environments.
Duration: 60 - 180 minutes
