Oyster is a totally unclassifiable piece, conceived by the Israeli choreographers Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak. If some characters are reminiscent of those of Tim Burton's universe, there are also Fellinian monstrous creatures and characters from silent films with Charlie Chaplin ... In short, a very exciting and original show where mingle ballet, contemporary dance, circus, mime, drama ... in an atmosphere full of poetry, humor and surrealism.
