Hocus Pocus is mainly based on the power of images, their magic and the sensations they provoke. The very unique set design allows for a playful and magical exploration into a game of appearances and disappearances of both bodies and accessories.
The brotherly relationship that develops between the two dancers constitutes the show’s guiding thread, both through the hardships they create for themselves to toughen themselves up, as well as through the fantastic voyage that subsequently awaits them.
Hocus Pocus is one of the few contemporary dance works intended for a young audience. It seeks to challenge the imagination of its audience, while weaving a narrative that is open enough for each child to build his or her own story.
