Sabotage is a story about self-discovery and acceptance. Following the life of a genderless character who goes on a journey of mindful thinking, he looks for inner peace and healing through circus.
On stage, you can see the bodies of a male and a female, but only one mind that works in unison.
We believe beauty is a never-ending movement. It's like ripples on the water where there is never balance. Are we able to find peace, the state of equilibrium, the place on one's shoulders where the balance changes to stillness?
With Sabotage we want to explore the harmony that we call inner peace. Only oneself can decide not to self-sabotage.
