About the performance

Realities is an artistic quest that starts from the magical feeling of scientific thinkers. In a form language that is open to different dimensions and multiverses in mentalism, music and scenography. Realities that overshoot each other provide the viewer with a completely unique stage experience. Realities is a performance that changes the way we look at reality forever.

About the company

Rode Boom was founded in 2007 and was an answer to a dream to once start a company that could create and make performances. The circustheatre and visual installations that Kurt Demey already made found a space in this supporting structure. Since then it became possible to professionalize and centralize his work.

Rode Boom creates visual road trips that takes the audience to ‘their’ reality and more. Performances filled with surrealistic and symbolic visuals, that also find their way to public space. In the artistic pallet of Kurt Demey different techniques of the magic world of illusion and mentalism come together with visuals and performances.

About the collaboration with Miramiro

De Rode Boom and Miramiro will proceed a collaboration trajectory over the next 5 years. Parallel to our own history, Kurt Demey’s roots lie in the street. During his training at the FAI AR6, he fell under the spell of mentalism. Since then, Kurt has followed his ‘quirky’ path and is an established name in the circus landscape, far beyond the Flemish borders.

Miramiro has followed Kurt’s career for 20 years and we share our love for the public space. With an application for structural recognition for his company, he takes the next necessary step.
