Description

The dream of old age and the fear of reaching it! In a battle against time, the Danish theatre company Don Gnu throw themselves into a physical and blazing acrobatic quest for the grey gold and to find the beauty in the decay of time. Daredevil antics, musical poetry and humorous self-realisation is the foundation of this tragicomical struggle against bittersweet old age.
