About the show
Vis à Vis’s artistic team is thrilled to announce their new open air performance for the 2017 and 2018 season: MARE. Vis à Vis appointed Swiss director Tom Ryser, recognising his experience in opera, musicals and circus. Featuring a water basin filled with over 1 million liters of water, live music and breath taking fire and water special effects. The 2018 season opens for previews on 9th of May and will end on the 15th of June.
About MARE: Rising sea levels, caused by global warming, have flooded the entire earth. Cities are swallowed by the rising waters. The remains of civilization are a handful of people on small islands trying to survive in this apocalyptic world. As the disaster escalates, Vis à Vis introduces a floating wooden house, a flooded nightclub with an unsteady floorshow, crashing air traffic and a couple of newlyweds heading for disaster.
