    A CONSTANZA MACRAS | DorkyPark and Goethe-Institut production

    Musicians, performers and dancers explode out of a packed Louis Vuitton clad car and straight into a journey through the Roma communities of Europe in this unexpected celebration of life and music. From the prejudices, clichés, traditions, poverty and violence – they honour the dwindling communities that they themselves belong to.


    There are moments of exquisite, if confusing, kitsch: I’m still not sure why the piece included a nun riding on a zebra but am very glad it did.

    The Stage

    Open for Everything is an untamed celebration of mirth and music – necessary elements to nurture the human soul.

    The Upcoming

    The Royal Court audience – traditionally rather well-behaved and well-to-do – began to warm up. Heads were nodding along; feet, tapping. Somebody whooped a dancer on, then somebody else. By the end, that demure, discerning audience was clapping in time and trilling along – caught up in the joy of it all. By the end, there was no us and them. Just a room full of people.
