Drüaad takes the audience to the land of fairy tales, where trees dance along with their inhabitants, where leaves offer nests and cover for the loneliest and where the hidden wonders become revealed. IInspired by nymphs and stories of forest fairies, it is a journey for the believers of magic or for those who need a reminder of its existence.
Drüaad is a site-specific performance built around a "home-tree", where aerial hammocks will be hanged. in addition to that, the show is created together with (preferably local) musicians, finding locations on spot to use for creating an interactive walking journey in the performance area.
