Excerpts from the media:
“…An experience I do not want to be without.”
“…that will without doubt take Johan Wellton to the really big theatres. Do not miss it, whatever you do.”
– Västerbottens-kuriren

“It is totally sensational, mind blowing, and somehow, also really disturbing.”
“Johan Wellton takes all the yellow balls, axes and light bulbs to completely new levels.”
“If you wish to see something you have never seen before, this is your chance. I have never seen anything like it” 
– Expressen

“Spellbinding chaos in Wellton’s wild show”
– Hallandsposten

”Touching ball trickery”
”It is very strong and beautiful”
– Gefle Dagblad

This is Johan Welltons most advanced and lavish production ever. With special effects, natural phenomenon and the art of engineering he shoots out for a new and unexplored adventure. All inventiveness and experimental curiosity becomes the framework for a story about our dreams, hope and despair. How far are we willing to go to become loved? To understand ourselves? To find context and a meaning in life?

See one of the world’s best jugglers in what may be one of the most advanced and complex shows about something as simple as life itself.

“I want to tell the story about giving a whole life to create a 10 minute long act. What drives a person to such a thing? I want to crash my feel of pure entertainment with a raw, true story from the core of my humanity. And then set the whole thing on  fire.”

Take all you’ve spent your life to achieve in one hand. Then take a big sledge hammer in the other and SET YOURSELF FREE. Nothing is static. Everything is movement. Crush your fine porcelain and crawl out of your shell. We swing. Everything swings. Live life. LET GO.
