Loose Ends is a theatrical adventure that feels like opening the magic box of a bygone trickster.

Developed and performed by Paris-trained, multi-disciplinary circus artist and quirkologist Jens Altheimer, Loose Ends makes science and technology cool – it inspires kids and adults alike to tinker with machines, and make their own contraptions and inventions. Audience participation is required.

Familiar household items are transformed and given surprising new uses, offering a humorous and human look at the world that surrounds us. Rich in visual variety, audiences will be stunned by the contraptions coming to life before their very eyes in this curious world.

Expect custom-built contraptions, headstrong puppets, circus, shadow projection, music, wacky gadgets and a whole lot of fun, but don’t expect that everything follows the path of our expectations.

Loose Ends features contraptions, tricks and quirky characters, but it is also a story about friendship, acceptance and loyalty. There is plenty of entertainment with a dose of emotion in a story about a man who thinks he can organise all his life in boxes, well, he will have to learn a big thing about real friendships.
