Playing with clichés

Tradition aginst actuality, women against men, lust against disgust, decorum against irreverence, Duo Kandeu mixes everything to give you an entertaining show punctuated with Oh's and Ah's! On traditional German music, electronic music, classical music and yodel, the German-Canadian duo incorporates folkdance and Bayern traditions to contemporary circus techniques. Schuhplattler dancing, silks climbing, bier mug balancing, pretzels juggling... yes we do play with our food!
