Infinita - Fana Kulturhus

A wordless, yet eloquent masque.

The German ensemble Familie Flöz have specialised in entertaining performances for the whole family, and their productions are a mix of physical comedy, masque and mime. Without spoken words, but with breathtaking body language and expressive masques, the audience is drawn into their dark and humorous tales. In 2015 the ensemble performed Hotel Paradiso at the Bergen International Festival.

Infinita deals with the puzzle of life and death, of its first and last moments, presenting us with four magnificently masked figures, a very crafty game of shadows and some truly enchanting music.

We witness a vigorous succession of scenes picturing the inevitable fate of the human being, in this game of transience, of being born and of growing old. Life itself – that creative force that lets us triumph and fail – plays the star role.

Infinita is a tangible mosaic of life, simply and virtuously composed; a brief insight into the eternity of death and everything else that is odd.

"At the end of a performance one could swear that the actors had spoken, laughed and cried. A fascinating experiment in theatre that is executed with incredible body control." – Süddeutsche Zeitung
