Dada

Wed Mar 15 1:30 PM

Leopold Minute, a clockmaker by profession, is suddenly filled with a sweet insanity that he expresses through dance, juggling and acrobatics. Guided by his extraordinary conscience and his musicality, Leopold possesses an exceptional background on which to develop his own personal rhythmic style. Stunned by his ever-present conscience, he is torn between his shyness and his desire to take risks, between the twirls of the accordion and the softness of the cello.
