Tickets A twist between Fellini and Lewis Carroll, Habitats is an enchanting performance for all ages combining elements of physical comedy, contemporary dance, circus and shadow puppetry. Accompanied by a mysterious white hare, a woman travels through dream-like roads in search of home. Through her journey into the unknown, she learns to transform her fears into curiosity. Celebrating the power of imagination, Habitats is a living poem about migration, transformation and the interaction between humans and animals.
