OTTO AUGENMERK

Dance theater without words for young audiences 5-years old and up
The character OttO Augenmerk was created by Gabriel Galíndez Cruz in collaboration with actor Jan Kress. The pieces are composed of single episodes. Their content is easy to grasp, because the narrative style is clear and direct. OttO Augenmerk opens the doors to a universal communicative world, where sounds do not exist, and that anyone can understand, regardless of the language he or she speaks.
