Hundreds of cushions form a circle in which the audience take their seats. On, under or in the cushions, we dream about the (im)possibility of things in different scenarios.

What would a circus or show be without surprise? Through the interplay between announcement and performance, ‘Permit, oh permit my soul to rebel’ seeks to find the spectacular in the mundane and the mundane in the spectacular. Inside the soft universe of cushions and feathers, a temporary refuge for relaxed rebellion emerges.

‘Permit, oh permit my soul to rebel’ is a relaxed performance. This means that the production was created from the outset with the aim of being accessible to audiences who need a more relaxed environment in order to attend the theatre or circus. The codes of theatre, such as the habit of remaining still and not reacting verbally or physically to what is happening, are explicitly altered in a relaxed performance. The performance also avoids strong and sudden stimuli such as strobe lights and loud noises. The performance can be watched from near or far, and the doors of the auditorium remain open at all times. The audience can and indeed is encouraged to move around freely.
