The Moon Illusion \\ Rapid Eye
A stuffed duck and 70 juggling rings is all they need. With a subtle sense for each other’s presence the two jugglers employ equal parts artistic skill and simple chance to conjure up situations which are both surprising and touching. With each juggling throw, a new moment begins. A show in which a moon and a duck are everything and nothing.

Rapid Eye was founded in 2010, and has since then managed to establish itself with a unique profile in contemporary performing arts. The company creates performances in the borderland between modern circus, dance and visual theater. It reflects a distinct Nordic style of minimalistic elegance. The performances are characterized by a love for human beings and their wondering at the world, and they explore the perception of reality in a playful way. Rapid Eye questions the big and small things in life. The relation between you, me, life, and the universe are put under the microscope. Humorous poetry, philosophical magic, artistic precision and timing, as well as charming personalities on stage constitute the fascinating uniqueness and quality of Rapid Eye’s performances.
