Confetti Storm at Twin Paradox

We saw another performance of Twin Paradox on Friday night with a different group of kids. After the artist talk, they had only one question: can we go on the stage? Still covered in confetti, they got the ok and went to it...

And then, out of nowhere... the fans to blow the confetti up came on under the floor, igniting screams throughout the hall… we're not sure who it was that turned them on, but whoever you are… 
WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!

TWIN Paradox

 On Thursday we took the jury to see Twin Paradox, another dance piece in the Ruhrtirennale choreographed by Mathilde Monnier. Would the kids like it as much as Soapera? Not sure, but at least for this show, we had some real twins to be the judges (and some fake ones).
