In this insane solo performance, acrobat Lucho Smit pushes the limits of circus. Stubborn and obsessed with a goal he will probably never reach, he wants to go faster, further, and higher.

The lion’s leap, a cowboy’s act, a little trapeze routine, tumbling on a smooth rope, improbable balances, tightrope walker, skill of the mad cook and other essentials are covered.

With the help of his loyal assistant and his precious audience, he may eventually come to understand that his quest is useless and lost to begin with, and that it’s better to change his desires rather than the order of the world.

Acrobat, lion tamer, cowboy, trapeze artist, cook... can one artist be it all?
